      Tinnitus Since:
      Three years
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Leaf blower and back fire snow blower
      So for a number of years have always had a very low level of tinnitus. I lost a dear friend in December and the month before and during December my tinnitus has gotten worse which is now basically pulsating in my right ear. I have had an MRI and CT scan and both came back normal. I will say stress tends to make it worse. I went to the emergency room and they thought maybe Meniere's disease but I have never been dizzy or vertigo. When I took 1/2 of a Valium at the hospital about 75% of the pulsating got better. Like I said before have had before but never constant now. The only reason they said Meniere's was I had little like 1 or 2 on scale of 10 ear fullness. Hoping with managing stress this will go back to being intermittent.

      Thanks in advance for your feedback!

      Could just be a spike due to stress.
      I had a 2 week spike :/
