      Hi, I'm keen to hear from other pulsatile tinnitus sufferers, could you please tell me what your PT actually sounds like, is it a whoosh, a heartbeat sound etc etc?

      Mine is a heartbeat sound (a pulse sound / thump), not a whoosh) and it is totally in sync with my pulse. I can usually only hear it with my neck in certain positions, it is not very loud, and I can only hear it in a very quiet room (and in bed).

      Thanks,
      Ian.

      Hi @Ian Mc! Mine comes and goes, but it tends to be a "woosh" sound. It actually sounds pretty much exactly like the sound of a babys heartbeat (the one you can hear on ultrasound), only slower.

      Mine was a "tum tum tum" but now it's a "whoosh", it's very light, I can only hear it in a quiet room

      I sometimes get this if I bend right down and touch my toes then suddenly stand up, like the sound of blood rushing for a few seconds.

      Mine is a high frequency pulsating hiss which has grown with intensity over the last 5 years. One increase was major after I attended a long music show. I also have been experiencing vertigo and my ears have developed an internal pressure which seems to be directly wired to the T.

      whoosh whoosh whoosh whoosh in time with heartbeat. Also, a low rumble like a car idling outside. Also, a long whoosh when getting out of bed like a pipe draining.

      Ive been having vertigo since may.
      My tinnitus is like yours except it grows in intensity daily. It always goes back down though. Medicine lowers it, inflamation seems to make it loud. It goes over my head at its worst. But most of time I can control it. I have a drone with certain movements, a low eee, cicadas and a loud woosh. A couple others but medicine controls mine. So far I havent been able to help this damn Vertigo.:oldman:

      Mines is like a tumble dryer/ boiler sound but with the door closed so sounds a bit muffled. It also revves up and down at times. I’ve also noticed that if I compress
      the bridge of my nose with my thumb and finger then sometimes it stops/reduces the sound but not always

      Mine was exactly like this. In the last few days it has increased and I hear it in certain positions especially at night.
