Hello everyone. I just happened to notice it for the first time ever a few days ago. Occasionally I get a whooshing sound in my left and sometimes right ear. If you've ever heard a heartbeat or blood flow on an ultrasound this is exactly how'd I describe what I'm hearing. Sometimes I get a very dull ache and fullness feeling in my left ear. I haven't yet been to the doctor as it just started. I don't even know how to explain this to my doctor. I've read a lot of stories of people being told to just "live with it" by their physicians. Or "it's just tinnitus" and the doctor not exploring the cause. I'm worried as to the cause. I know a lot of things can cause it. I have no major health issues that I know of. I'm a 35 year old female. I am on a low dose of levothyroxine for sublcinical hypothyroidism. I also do suffer from TMJ. Thoughts? Suggestions?
