Hi There, I posted a while ago about my pulsatile tinnitus. I have had a few MRI scans scheduled, but have cancelled as I'm too anxious about them - not the smartest thing, I know... Anyway, I've noticed recently that if I put pressure onto the side of my neck, the PT and hearing loss goes away completely. What could this mean? Does it point to anything in particular? I'm particularly worried about acoustic neuromas and the possibility of a brain aneurysm. My grandmother had a brain aneurysm burst a few years back, and I've read that sometimes they can be hereditary. I have decided to go to my MRI appointment next week... but I just want some advice regarding what I've found out about applying pressure. Thanks in advance.
