      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I have both normal tinnitus and pulsatile tinnitus, but my GP and ENT specialist tells me there is no cure.

      My pulsatile tinnitus started about 18 months ago, and my normal tinnitus started about 2 years ago.

      I also suffer from numbness / pins and needles on almost all of the left hand side of my body.

      I have had MRI's and hearing test, and all come out normal, and if fact I have been told I have excellent hearing .... so, what's going on.

      Specialists say there is no tumours, damage or blood flow problems.

      I have never been subject to loud noise without ear protection, and actually seek out low noise areas when ever possible.

      My PT drives me crazy 24/7 , and my T doesn't vary in volume or pitch 27/7.

      Masking sounds / devices don't make difference, and the ENT guys don't seem to care one bit.

      Does sound familar ??

      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Meniere's Disease
      Sounds like the pins and needles could be a trapped nerve in the top of your spine/neck and that could cause tinnitus also.
      You might also be picking up the pulse from your coroted artery that is right by your middle ear.
      Keep pushing for information and tests.
      Also if you have any jaw problem like grinding teeth you could read up on TMJ.....just a couple of ideas for you that might need looking in to as ENT and MRI was ok....lots of love glynis
