View Full Version : Odd symptoms, do you have this at all?

I need, if I want to feel better that is, surgery on cervical discs. Despite the pain, what bothers me more is that I have this whooshing, it goes from my neck to my ear, right sided, which is where the pain is. I also get a metallic clanging sound in right ear if I look down for too long. I have experienced tinnitus, and this is different. I feel like blood flow is cut off in a way. This happens when I sit and go to stand. No heart issues. I have stenosis, radiculopathy and arthritis in shoulder and neck. Neuro says see and ENT.

I would suggest you follow your spine surgeon's suggestion to see an ENT. What you describe does not sound like a symptom of cervical spine issues....at least none that I am familiar with.

After a bit more research, I do think that it may be pulsatile tinnitus, however, it really only happens when I flex or extend my neck, which makes me think an artery is involved. I guess next step is to the see the ENT.
