I Saw an ent consultant when I 1st started with pulsatile tinnitus. .They gave me a head mri scan which came back normal and listened to the blood flow in my neck ...that seemed ok too...i put up with it for 3 years...i then had sepsis to my amazement i noticed my pulsatile tinnitus had gone ...It was brilliant ...that was 2 years ago and it returned with a vengeance in June of thus year ...little different this time as my hearing been really affected also. My gp booked an appointment with an ent consultant. ..he said because I had an mri head scan 5 years ago he wasn't willing to give me another and never tested arteries in next just sent me to tinnitus clinic who just altered my hearing aid ...i wasn't happy with the consultant eagernessto get me out of his office ..I felt let down and I wanted tests to find out what caused my symptoms. .i contacted pals who suggested I see another member of his team ...i saw her today she was adamant not to do any tests other than she listened to the arteries in my neck ...and that's it ....It was 5 years when I last had a mri head scan since then had a parathyroid adenoma removed ...Over active thyroid ..atrial fibrillation. ..but made no difference. .won't do another mri ...what shall I do now ...please advise Carroll
