      do you know any links where I can learn about BP , carotid problems related tinnitus? I am asking because I only know that tinnitus is called either 'pulsatile' or 'noise induced', but the pulsatile implies that one hears a tinnitus with a pulse only. So how would be the one related to vascular problems, with noises of the continuous type (i.e. there';s no rhythms or pulses) be called?

      On the web I can only find either about noise induced tinnitus or pulsatile, but it seems that there's a type with no pulse noise, yet still related to vascular problems. Is that still pulsatile, or do I have to search for something else, and what?

      @wishingluck,
      Hypertension and its related conditions can lead to the creation of humming or rushing tinnitus sounds due to turbulence in the manner of blood flow. This condition will have other ramifications as well. ...lots of love glynis

      thanks Glynis, but does this type of tinnitus has a name? does it fall into the 'pulsatile' category? I am trying to understand what to look for in google, any ideas? thanks :)

      after all I think it's unlikely it's a vascular problem, because the spikes although happen only in the middle of the night while asleep, they also disappear after a while if I don't get up and still manage to sleep. Unless the blood pressure goes up and down while asleep? I thought it would remain constant, but maybe I am wrong. Still, I did measure the BP when a spike happened, and the pressure was higher indeed.

      How do I get checked for vascular problems? Do I just go back to the GP and ask? Thanks
