I had meningitis as a baby and as a result, I have had hearing loss and tinnitus all my life. At around 19, the gift of Meniere's Disease was bestowed upon me. (Extreme sarcasm) I am 43 now and I have had 3 major Meniere's attacks. When I was younger, I was not treated and it eventually cleared up. My last attack was around mid Jan. Anyway, the last stage of an attack is really loud tinnitus (in my best hearing ear) and now it has started to pulse. Normally, my T doesn't really bother me at all, but this pulsing T is driving me insane. The ENT was useless and the audiologist was nice, but gave me no info I didn't already know. The pulsing T is not new to me, but normally it never lasts long. It is because of the fluid build up in my inner ear mostly caused by allergies. I take a diuretic and a Zyrtec D and have been eating less processed, sodium filled foods. Since my condition is not heart related, would this still be referred to as pulsatile tinnitus?
