      Hi, Sandra,

      It's possible that you could have pulsatile tinnitus. One way to tell, when you hear the whooshing, is to see if it is exactly in time with your pulse or heartbeat. Hold your fingers to your wrist and count the beats, and note if you can count those same beats in your ears.

      If the pulsating becomes more severe, you may want to see a doctor to have it checked out, to rule out any problems.

      I have pulsatile tinnitus, too, but mine is constant. I also have a high-pitched, constant hissing sound along with it.

      I wish you well, and hope that yours settles down soon.

      Best wishes,
