    Yes it is.

    As your brain send false signals that you are worried (Anxiety), your body reacts as it should and sight, hearing will become more acute. Its because you are worried and your body is doing what it should do, looking for a problem and listening for a problem. But there is no problem.

    It will pass, ignore it if you can, but it is very normal.

    Hi Ten,

    Presumably you have been to the GP and had them checked or even been to Ears Nose and Throat specialist that would reassure you ,then with that all ruled out then it could be anxiety,but I am not GP so let the professionals assure you.Good Luck.

    Ever since i started with anxiety in 2012 i have had pulsating tinnitus, which alternates from a pulsing noise to a whooshing noise. so i am assuming for me its all to do with the anxiety.
