      Obligatory first post HELLOOOO!!! ;)

      Thought I'd sign up and try add my experiences and ramblings to your forum. Not holding out any hope for finding a cure on here but might be fun to share a few musings with fellow sufferers.

      Seems my tinnitus is of the 'not so common' pulsatile variety. Today it's particularly bad :confused: but I don't let it get me down. :sneaky:

      Hello Dan. I too am a new member. Also good to the share experiences, with even more experienced people in here. I'm new the world of Tinnitus, I am not liking it. That’s great that the T doesn't bother you. I too have this pulsing kind. I don't think it’s un-common at all. Anyway welcome. Lots of smart people in here with much experience.

      Hey Dan and James welcome. There are members here who also share pulsatile T, Karen and Calin. I am sure they will chime in soon.

      Hi, Dan,
      Welcome! I've had pulsatile tinnitus since May 2010 (coming up on three years now), along with a high-pitched, hissing-type ringing tinnitus. I'd like to hear your story, as a fellow PT sufferer.

      Have you had pulsatile tinnitus constantly since April 2011? Does yours come and go, or is it with you 24/7? What kinds of tests, if any, have you had? What does yours sound like? What are some things you are doing to cope?

      I'm also a member of Whooshers.com. There is a lot of helpful information there for those of us with PT. You might want to check it out, if you haven't already done so.

      I've had an MRI/MRA with contrast, a CT scan of the temporal bone, and a Doppler of my carotid arteries. So far, no cause has been found.

      We're glad you joined us on Tinnitus Talk, and I'll look forward to hearing more about you, and sharing information and support. There are other on here, besides James and me, who have PT. I'm sure Calin will want to chime in soon, too. Glad you joined us!
