Constant bounding pulse, headache, tinnitus!!!

Posted , 12 users are following.

Hi and sorry for the lengthy post, I have a bit of a mysterious case going on and I was wondering if this might resonate with anybody on here 😃.

For about a year now I have been experiencing a nmber of symptoms which are;

Visual problems which is quite hard to explain... Kind of like a spaced out feeling all the time, with some mild eye floaters and some mild visual snow.

A constant bounding pulse, which is visible in many parts of my body including, my stomach, my neck, my wrist, my groin etc even my feet. It is really frustrating as it rocks me about in bed at night and I struggle to sleep because of it. I can also hear my pulse loudly when I have my head on my pillow.

Tinnitus, which is high pitched and very distracting

Headaches which are almost constantly... These often feel like a sinus headache.

I also have a few lymph nodes that can be felt which have been scanned and said to be reactive and just working normally.

Possible IBS as well.

So far I have seen ENT, gastro, cardiology, neurology, immunology. I have head two head mri's, echo, colonoscopy, immuno investigations to name a few but everything is coming back good. I've even done an at home tilt table test and my bp and hr were fine.

I am a 29 year old male who was previously a fit, active gym goer. Before this I had a stomach bug which I seemed to recover from, however I am not sure if it is a potential cause or seperate. I've suffered with lower back pain to for many years, which I have just put down to the gym and sports.

If anybody has some insight or useful knowledge, I would be extremely greatful.

Thankyou very much in advance!!!

    hi Jerome,

    Exactly same as you for the past 5 month, i can only sleep on my back or else the pulse sensation in my neck/ head as well as the sound wakes me up. I'm a lot lot less anxious since i know its not a cardiac issue (although i have a bicuspid valve).

    The cardiologist told me to take some SSRI but made me feel depressed so i stopped on the 4th day.. Benzo help with the sleeping but i do not want to be addicted so i limit myself to 2 a week to at least have 2 good night sleep.

    Have you found a solution?
