Until 5 june 2014 i enjoyed my life and had taken care of myself. On that day i discovered i could hear a noise in my left ear and neck that sychronised to my heartbeat. It is 24/7 high pitched and sounds like sleighbells. It fluctuates in volume for no reason throughout the day and night. I can change the pitch and volume by various neck and jaw movements. I can move it to the right ear with jaw, neck and pressing on right mastoid bone. I can change the pitch by pressing on my head anywhere. If i drink a glass of wine it gets very loud and swaps to my right ear! It is reactive to loud noises so therefore i cannot go to cinema, parties, theatre. The noise becomes incredibly loud. Nothing drowns it out at all. Four months ago i heard ringing in my right ear which has stayed but i can filter that out. At the same time I started to get flutters to peoples voices but if I cover one ear it stops! I hear another heartbeat noise which sounds like a metal drum in the distance. I hear intermittent ticking in my left ear. I have normal hearing! I have had every scan possible and the best consultants have reviewed my scans and they are all normal. I cannot sleep and have no desire to sleep. Could anyone shed any light on what is causing this? According to research it is blood flow or bone causing pulsatile noises. But I beleive that it has nothing to do with that cause. Ithas the characteristics of normal t. Unlike t I cannot find any ongoing research to this. I just feel like giving up now. It has been hell. However can anyone function with such loud intrusions? I just want to be normal.
