Pulsatile tinnitus for years, sleep disorders ppt - How to DIY

Author: admin
I'm a 34 year old female, and I have had subjective unilateral pulsatile tinnitus since 2006. Pulsatile tinnitus can be caused by many factors, so it's hard to pinpoint exactly why it occurs.
Since yours is mild, it may be possible for you to live with it, and it could eventually disappear on its own. This doctor was a short distance from me (in NYC), so I figured that it would be a quick trip for me to go see him, and that I had nothing to lose. What he did find though is bilateral stenosis of two veins (one on each side of my head) and that is what is causing the pulsatile tinnitus in my left ear. I feel like finally having a diagnosis and a cause identified for my pulsatile tinnitus eases my daily anxieties in a tremendous way. My anxiety was pretty well managed with 75mg of Effexor XR, but I have been off of it several times over the years.


I made an appointment, went to see the doctor, and brought him CD's of all my previous imaging tests for him to review. I've lived for years worrying that I had a blood clot, and could have a stroke at any moment.
I just started taking it again in February 2014, but hadn't needed to be on it for almost a year. Shapiro removed 20cc's of CSF fluid, as he felt that it was high and an IIH diagnosis, but unfortunately the pulsatile tinnitus did not subside once I got up.
From the moment I sat down and explained to him what I was hearing, and for the first time in this extremely long & exhausting journey, I was finally sitting in front of a doctor who was not only extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, willing to listen to me, but most importantly had heard of this condition! Not in all cases, but in mine I not only hear my heartbeat, but I also feel it in my head as well; as a pulsation. He assured me that the pulsatile tinnitus wasn't a psychological condition, and he reviewed all my imaging tests with me one by one.


He's been excellent with me so far, and I just went to see him for the first time a few weeks ago. Within a short period of time though the pulsatile tinnitus was then accompanied by intermittent dizziness, headaches, and nausea.
He then sent me for a high resolution MRI with contrast and a MRA, which I performed last Monday. The reason that I started trying to identify the cause again is because my husband and I are planning for pregnancy, and being that I have normal (even low sometimes) blood pressure, I'd been told by my OBGYN that there was a possibility that the pulsatile tinnitus would get worse with the normal increased blood volume, hormones and blood pressure elevation associated with being pregnant. It makes me really nervous, since I already have a hard time right now dealing with the sound in it's current form.
