I've had pulsatile tinnitus for years now, but that has a pretty low volume and was diagnosed as an innocent venous hum. Finally I could accept it and stop worrying about it. Now, sinds 3-4 months I have a new problem. It started with constant daily headaches (in forehead), post nasal drip (mucus in the back of throat when swallowing) and, you guessed it, pulsatile tinnitus. The doctors have no idea anymore what I have. Went to the GP for like 6-7 times now and I've even was given anti-biotics (didn't help). They all seem to think it is an imflammation of my sinussus which causes light swellings and irritation. Hence the mucus production, headaches and possibly even the tinnitus. I have a blood test scheduled for next week to test for allergies. But I have few hope for that, since I don't have classic allergy symptoms, nor ever had, plus I've used anti-histamines for 6 weeks already to combat it. No effect. The only thing that has helped for minimizing the headaches is a stereoid nosespray to promote mucus drainage. The tinnitus persists however. I can best describe it as someone blowing into my ear on the exact rhythm of my heart beat. It is very audible at night, at times even very loud. When I wake up in the morning it is almost gone... Also, when I clog my ear with my finger it becomes almost inaudible... My ears have been cleaned and there is no fluid behind the eardrum. That is what is done / checked. Could all my new symptoms be related? Everywhere I read that pulsatile tinnitus on 1 ear could be signs of something bad like aneurysms or tumors... My GP's say I don't have to worry about that as I have none of their symptoms and tumors don't cause mucus production or post nasal drip. But still, I'm kinda worried so I wanted to ask you guys your experiences with this. Anyone had anything that resembles this? Or any medical advice or idea about what this all might be?
