      I have tonal tinnitus from acoustic trauma, and it gets slightly louder at every heart beat. It isn't pulsatile tinnitus in that i'm not hearing the actual heartbeat or whooshing sounds - the ringing just gets louder with the pulse. Does anyone else have this? Any opinions would be much appreciated!

      Tinnitus Since:
      12/2012
      I experienced this tonight, hence my Google search which led me here. My tinnitus has been growing in perceived volume the past few weeks. I am unsure of the cause, but I can confirm I have been consuming a lot of coffee lately (at least 3-4 large mugs daily). I also have some TMJ problems which I am curious if they could be contributing as sometimes the popping of my jaw makes my ears ring. I have been learning to not panic or feel alarmed when the symptoms appear strong as I know my doctor's can't do anything about it. ‎I just want to know I'm ignoring tinnitus and not a potential brain tumor or other malady which otherwise would need to be investigated.
