Hi all. I've been lurking here since my pulsatile tinnitus (unilateral, right side) showed up in November 2015. My symptoms started in conjunction with a sinus infection, but I'm not sure if this is a coincidence or not. After taking antibiotics for the infection, the noise has decreased somewhat in volume, but is still there. If I tilt my head to the opposite side as the noise, it goes quiet, if I press on my vein, quiet. Sometimes if I blow my nose (accompanied by plenty of ear crackling) and leave the pressure in my ear (i.e. don't move my jaw or swallow. I hope that makes sense), the noise is gone. If I bend over or stand up quickly, there's a surge in the whooshing for a split second, then it goes back to normal whooshing. I also feel a slight pressure/full sensation in my affected ear as well. Since then I've had an MRI with contrast, CT scan, and ultrasound of the neck. Nothing of note to report except I have a slight erosion of the bone that sits between my vein and ear, which the radiologist suggested might be the cause of my pulsatile tinnitus. She's going to have a closer look at all my scans and send an official report to my ENT, who I will see on Thursday. I'm still trying to wrap my head around all this as well as the possibility of having to live with this incessant noise for the rest of my life. Have any of you come across studies/information having to do with bone erosion and pulsatile tinnitus? Also, I know many of you have been living with this sound for a long time, any helpful advice on how to stay sane? I just get so frustrated sometimes when the room goes quiet and the whooshing sound seems even more oppressive than usual.
