    Hi Abigail,  It is called Pulsatile Tinnitus. I had the same thing, but it went in a few days, however, I have a ringing in my ear whenever there us no background noise ( which is tinnitus ) but it is all caused by stress. I would go to my doctor ( if you haven't already) as he/she would know more than me. But I'm almost certain it is nothing, just another symptom.

    Hopefully this helps,Jack

    This seems fairly common with anxiety. It happens to me sometimes, usually when lying on my left side in my left ear. I just turn over and ignore it. It doesn't last long.

    That is so annoying. When I was feeling anxious and going through that whole scene, I had heart beat in my ears for a while,along with ringing. I went to my ear doc,and with out telling him I was having anxiety, he told me it is apprehension. Light bulb moment. It did eventually go away. I am on meds now, cause the anxiety never did. Hope this helped you.

    I think i can hear my blood flow to be honest. Its so weird. I have heart beat. Anxiety can do that. Blood pressure can do that. Its inflammation in that area. leans in the eustatian tube. Its annoying that does come and go, i get so many weird tinnitus things i cant keeo track. It changes uo and comes and goes. But i did get some tests and they keep saying its from the eustatian  tube and go into the anatomy of it. All i care about is it to leave. And they said low salt. I also have bad tmj and of course the more stress the it annoys me. It is really annoying!
