    Pulsatile Tinnitus

    Hey there-
    After months of this, I've finally decided to write about it. I've been having a pulsatile sound in my left ear for a few months. It's especially worse when I bend over or turn my head. I had a dr give me antibiotics and a steroid nasal spray, but that hasn't been helping. They assumed it was Eustachian tube dysfunction. It started after I got back from a trip in Florida, where I was in the ocean and underwater frequently. It doesn't last all day and comes intermittently- doesn't bother me at night. I'm a hypochondriac and don't want it to be serious, I keep telling myself I have water in my ear .. But I'm a high stress person and I'm afraid I've given myself an aneurysm or something :/ I'm 22, in decent health. I still haven't finished the antibiotic quite yet. Any suggestions?

    Hi Eirishrose,

    Can you hear other sounds like your own voice loudly in your affected ear? I am wondering if you also have Autophony symptoms - hearing self generated noises like heartbeat, own speach loudly, eye movements (a bit bizare).

    Also, do you have any dizziness/disequilibrium?
