I have had pulsatile T for a few seconds but it's very rare. You hear your heart beat from the artery next to the ear.
I wonder if you are talking about the same thing I have. For years now, every day I have these cracking sounds in my jaw. they are very strange, kind of like the sounds rice crispies makes in milk. those tiny little cracking sounds. I feel like I have some control over making them but I can't seem to stop it. These sounds drive me crazy when I'm lying in bed at night trying to sleep. I feel like there are noises in my head. its horrible. The doctors never understand what I mean when I describe these noises.Both of my joints are very inflammed (my whole face is swollen) due to my TMJ and the discs in my jaw are out of place. I constantly hear and feel the heartbeat in both of my joints. it's pounding very loudly, and I have horrible horrible headaches. The past few days the headaches have been the worst, and I took ultracet which only made it 100 times worse and I couldn't even stand up. The past few days, I also started having this burning feeling in my jaw. it feels like when you put alcohol on a wound. there's this warm burning feeling. and I feel like something warm is moving in my jaw and in my head. I don't know how to describe it. like thes warm waves in my jaw and head.
does anyone else have this? I went to a doctor who sen me to have a brain MRI but I don't get the results for a few days. I'm kind of freaking out.
