Hey all. My name is Ashlie and I'm 30 years old. I have dealt with pulsatile tinnitus on and off for a few years in my right ear. It has always come and gone or when it has stayed it has been very soft. For the last week it has been non stop and pretty loud. Last night I pretty much lost it. It is driving me quite insane. How do people live like this without killing themselves? I have been to my ENT about it before and they did an MRI and couldn't find anything wrong with me in relation to the tinnitus I experience. What is the next step? I have had pretty bad ear infections my entire life and was diagnosed with eustachian tube dysfunction and at age 18 I got some tubes in my ears. Now, I have holes in my eardrums due to the tubes. I am wondering if this has anything to do with this. I just got a sound machine today to help me sleep. Last night was horrendous. The fan I use didn't work one bit. I feel so alone and don't know how I will deal with this. Any help, advice, and support would be greatly appreciated. I'm so glad I found this site today!!!
