      Pulsatile tinnitus is where you hear rhythmical noises that often beat in time with your pulse.

      It's usually caused either by:

      blood flow changes in the blood vessels near your ear

      increased awareness of the blood flow near your ears

      The blood flow through an artery can sometimes become restricted by a build-up of fatty deposits (plaques) on the inside wall of the artery.

      This is known as atherosclerosis and causes the artery to narrow. The narrowed artery prevents blood from flowing smoothly, resulting in it becoming 'noisy'.

      If you have impaired hearing or a hearing condition such as a perforated eardrum, your awareness of sounds that come from inside your body, such as your blood flow, may be increased.

      This is because your hearing becomes more sensitive and internal noises aren't drowned out by external sounds.

      This is what I have been dealing with for years and I've even went to a ear nose and throat specialist but it scared me off when he wanted to do surgery is there anything I can do other than surgery it's starting to get the best of me

    HI Nonnie

    yes... Well.... its hard  to explain, i have one ear ( well i have two) 😀 but just my left one plays me up, its like a dull earache ... Like it could pop, a pressure pain. always like it ..

    i have used otocerum drops about two months ago in each ear, and was amazed how they cleared ie: wax came out 

    infact last night i remembered to put drops in the left ear only incase there is more lodged. ' i am sure there is ' 

    ( sorry sounds gross - but waxy ears also cause problems) 

    also that side my ear hurts is the side the teeth are more sensitive - teeth have been checked and xrayed and all is fine 😧

    Tinnitus: ringing in ears, bells, 'whooshing,' buzzing etc.

      Hi Nonnie

      weird isnt it..

      mines like pressure in it, no hissing or whoosing or ringing ..

      just feels like abit of pressure.. even when i do the hold nose and blow to clear it ( like pilots do ) its quite safe .. 

      it clears abit but still full of pressure ... 

      its not infected or sore... just a niggle .. 😞

      Ita called the Valsalva maneuver.

      Take a deep breath, hold your mouth closed, plug your nose closed, and force air up the Eustachian tubes by blowing.

      You will feel a pop if the technique works.

      However, be sure not to blow too forcibly or you could damage your ears.

      its a must after flying ... clears the discomfort pressure straight away

      That movement can lead to further probs,few on the site I mentioned earlier to Nonnie didn't recommend it,so I've never done it..It's an awkward condition to treat,with no cure out there,,I'd try Steam inhalation,or put warm cloth to the ear,see if that helps first.Some say Epley manoeuvre ,but needs to be done by someone trained in doing this,I never put drops in ears,or olive oil ,another that can give you more trouble,than from where you began.

        That being my input,you sound chirpy today Jay.im a bit jaded today ,Gyne jaded day I call it.It will pass off hopefully as day goes on no doubt,better had.Trying to decide what's on my menu today.You okay after your rice pud.xx

      Hi Marlene

      no i dont suggest people do the Valsalva manoeuvre for tinnitus

      no no... only for pressure like when you get off a plane..

      all i have is pressure.. not ringing etc..

      me i tend to be chirpy most days... not often i get a blip lately ..

      the niggles i can deal with ... 

      yes ... i am fine after the rice pud ( thank goodness ) the pro biotic i take has made such a difference to me .. its the recommneded one for digestve probs.. just the Acidophilus 3 billion ... 

      i take it on its own as soon as I get up with a glass of water ... and its working wonders, normally my stomach is well bad in the morning..

      so all good so far, seems to suit me..

      the Vit E seems to suit too... all good 

      sorry your feeling abit crook 😥

      the tiny bit of Ovestin ' Estriol' cream  i use every 4 days ( half measure and only every 4 days for the short term ) has made a huge difference too .

      Hi Marlene

      Vit E. as you know i have the hot flushes back and also it helps papitations 

      What are the acclaimed benefits of taking vitamin E for menopause?

      Vitamin E is taken during menopause to alleviate your hot flashes and its accompanying night sweats.

      The vitamin is taken in hopes of reducing the frequency and severity of your mild hot flashes.

      It is also known for helping reduce heart palpitations and increasing your heart health in general.

      How much vitamin E do you need to consume per day to relieve menopause symptoms?

      The recommended dosage of vitamin E for menopausal women is 600 to 800 IUs per day.

      It is highly recommended to take three or four doses of 200 IUs throughout the day.

      Taking more than 200 IUs at any one time is dangerous to your health. Additionally, vitamin E needs to be taken with your meals in order for it to dissolve properly.
