I've had this before in my left ear and it would always settle down, but yesterday, last night and this a.m., I'm having the usual ringing become loud with each heartbeat in the rt. ear.  It only seems to do it when my heart rate increases some or lying on the rt. side.  Has anyone had this, and if so, does it usually settle down?

Thanks!

Tman, what you describe is not all that unusual.

I have had it before, but not that loud in the rt. ear.  I guess sleeping on my rt. side is a thing of the past.  I just hope it's not going to worsen to lying in any position.  I've had this in the left ear in the past, but it has always settled down, but never did the left ear keep doing it after I laid down for a minute or so.  This is, currently.  This is new being in the right ear, but hopefully just a temporary spike type event.

An impossible question to answer, that I find hard to even ask is, should this calm down as the other times?  I've had this before, and it usually does.  It would be hard to sleep with this RING-RING-RING! going on.  My usual steady sound isn't hard to sleep with.

Given the countless other temporary spike-type events that you have had throughout the years, why in the world would you invest a moment's time worrying whether or not this one will somehow be different and never go away?

Not worth a plug nickel, Dr. Nagler!  As it's not constant, that alone should be encouraging.

Thanks for bringing me out of the "worry fog" once more.

You are truly welcome, Tman.  Glad to be of help.

Now, what are YOU going to do to keep yourself from going INTO that "worry fog" in the first place?  Because as glad as I am to be of help once again, I'd be even more glad if you never again found yourself in need of that help.  And so would you!!!!!

I mean really, Tman.  Isn't it about time?

Does tinnitus change sounds a lot?  Recently, in the past two or three weeks, I have been getting this monotone sound that is much lower pitch than my tinnitus.  I think I could duplicate it on my piano.  It starts low, builds up in volume and then decreases with the same rate it went up.  Up and down generally within a minute or two.  Sometimes it repeats itself four or five times than goes away.  I'm not freaking out about it or even worrying that my tinnitus is getting worse - but it sure is interesting.  My "normal" tinnitus is  this very high pitch that sound like electrical lines zinging and wavering is about the best I can describe it.  Wonder where the new monotone sound is coming from?  Probably from the same place the rest of my tinnitus is - where ever that is.

Well, this new pulse-amped problem isn't improving.  My blood pressure is always perfect, so all I can figure is a possible artery problem within the ear structures themselves, or a circulation problem.  Meanwhile it is about to drive me crazy.  At least I can sleep, so that is a plus.  But, if this keeps worsening as I fear, I don't know where I'll be.  Something like this has always improved after 2 or 3 days.  So far, no improvement.

When the hearing and balance center found my ears were not to blame for the severe vertigo that attacked me last March, the audiologist said it is either from the left temporal cyst or circulation.  That could be a clue to this other.  My cholesterol is always a little high, but has not been high enough to placed on a drug for that, so far.

Fact:  I have been told my thyroid is a bit high.  I am getting this rechecked this next week.  I have also been told the thyroid, if not working properly, can cause all kinds of problems.  Louder tinnitus?  Pulsating?  I believe anything is possible!  I was on a thyroid pill in high school, but for unknown reasons, quit it.  I don't know if I got better or the Dr. took me off it.  I'm told once you need thyroid medication, you always will.  It would be wonderful if getting the thyroid in tune would help the tinnitus.
