      About the same as you --- taking it one day at a time. At least, I'm able to sleep these days, so that's something positive! I haven't totally given up going to doctors about my PT, but I have taken a break from it for right now.

      I'm glad you're doing better, and hope things continue to improve for you.

      thank you.same here.lately I have been able to sleep.i also have taken a break on seeing doctors for my pt.i did find a very good hospital here in nj where they said they would run the cerebral angiogram.but im holding off on that for a while due to the risks involved.

      I am holding off on this test as well. I am pretty stressed about going to get it but know it would give me peace if it comes back normal. I've had an MRA and a CTA. What do you think I am missing? What is your background with all of this?

      hi Ashlie. ive been battling pulsatile tinnitus for 8 months.and Its been some struggle.in the first month or so i was petrified that the pt was related to something life threatening;tumor and some other scary stuff.but when all my test came back negative my emotions quickly shifted to why aren't these test showing whats causing the noise in my head.i no longer worry that my PT is something life threatening.its just become such a challenge learning to live with such a condition.as far as the cerebral angiogram.its a much more invasive test than your basic MRI s and ct scans.i would recommend researching the test on the internet.ok let us know what you decide to do and hope to hear back fom you
