      I'm very confused. Since the onset of my tinnitus in my left ear due to a slap/perforated eardrum/ear infection 4 weeks ago (ear has been confirmed to be healed by the ENT but the tinnitus remains), when I go to lie down in bed, I can literally feel pulsing in my face and neck. The ENT said it was due to stressing and being anxious about the tinnitus so I've been working on my anxiety.

      However, the past couple of nights, I can also feel buzzing inside my throat to the point that I can almost taste it? I can't explain it, it's almost like a slithery electric snake, buzzing in my neck and face. It also feels like it's moving towards my right ear/head as well. When I get out of bed I feel it less so.

      Also I should mention I have high blood pressure, controlled with medication.

      Any idea what this sensation is?

      I've not heard of that specific symptom before, but pulsatile tinnitus can feel like it's filling the whole head and body.

      Might be worth an MRI, or did the ENT rule that out when he said the infection had healed?

      I thought it may be pulsatile but I can't actually hear my heartbeat unless I shut my ears and really listen for it which I always could pre tinnitus, I thought pulsatile was hearing your heartbeat?

      The ENT didn't suggest a MRI, he just said stop thinking about it and it will go away.

      Antibiotics (temporary) can cause this and more so with stress - high blood pressure.

      Possibly the antibiotics but I stopped that about 2 weeks ago. Should I give it another couple of weeks for this to die down? My blood pressure is controlled with meds so I presume that may not the cause. Stress levels are very high though, I'm trying to keep myself calm.

      Thank you.

      If you don't feel it while you are standing or sitting and you feel it when you go to lie down in bed, try to sleep on several pillows to keep your head elevated all the time, even during the night.

      Just an update from my ENT who has now suggested an MRI but after reading some of the information here, it suggested it might make things worse. What do you think?
