      Yes. I experienced this very rarely some months ago, but now it has become more and more often, and it is now there everyday... not 24/7... yet?

      Last night when I lay in bed and it went weeuh, weeuh, weeuh in tune to my pulse, I tried different things to make it stop, and clenching my jaw really hard made it into a constant tone instead. Obviously I couldn't do this for long and repeatedly causing clenching that hard made my teeth hurt and was starting to give me a headache.

      I am at lost... things just keep getting worse for me :(

      What can I do/try out? Do I need to get checked for something? I read pulsatile tinnitus is usually a symptom of something... NOT hearing loss or something in the inner ear like tinnitus and hyperacusis.

      Can benzo withdrawal cause pulsatile tinnitus??

      I am about 5 months out of benzos...

      Several causes
      The whooshhhh whoooshhh you hear is just the blood flow. It happens sometimes and normally it goes away in a while. It shouldn't be anything serious, calm down...

      Actually when you go for a run or work out sometimes you can feel similar stuff in your ears...

      Yeah, but if one exercises there is a natural cause for it. It should not happen while I lay in bed. Mine has only gotten more and more frequently recently.

      And it is not a whooshhh sound. It is a ringing tone, that spikes for each heartbeat.

      Overloaded stress
      I also have pulsating tinnitus mostly at night, when I first heard it, I went into denial saying this isn't so, but it was. So, I thought, where is this coming from I already had tinnitus for a while with static and crickets. It seemed to be happening only at night and it still does. So I started doing breathing exercises until it stops, I always think it's going to be all day, but it's not. Breathing works for me.
