Pulsatile tinnitus

[imwb_socialbuzz] By John On October 16, 2006 Under Tinnitus Questions

My tinnitus problem started last April after a sinus infection that settled in my left ear and I lost almost all my hearing there since. I even got a behind the ear hearing aid that really doesn’t help.

In losing my hearing I also began hearing my heart beat all the time it never stops. At times when in a noisy area it gets louder. I have had a MRI, MRA and doppler on the c/artery.

None of the tests showed any problems. The ear doctor said the reports said everything was OK no blockage of any kind and just a slight build up in the C/Artery but nothing to worry about. I take a lot of pills for heart, blood pressure, colsteral and my diebetic to boot. Is it time to cash in?

Betty, what exactly are you referring to when you ask is it time to cash in? If you mean what I think you do, then NO it is NEVER that time! There is always hope and we cann certainly help you with your tinnitus problem.

You mention that the pulsatile tinnitus started after a serious sinus infection.

That sinus infection that obviously caused the cochlear damage that lead to hearing loss and the resultant tinnitus. The reason you are experiencing pulsatile tinnitus (tinnitus which beats in time with your heart beat) is indeed most likley to be atheroma.

Atheroma is a fatty deposit in the intima (inner lining) of an artery, which can obstruct blood flow and is caused by high levels of cholesterol in the body.

I am really surprised by the statement from your ear doctor that this is nothing to worry about. High levels of cholesterol in your body is very dangerous and if the medications you are taking to control these cholesterol levels are not sufficient, you are advised to visit a dietician as soon as possible to get advice on a suitable diet to help control those cholesterol levels.

Having said all that you will remember that I mentioned earlier that your tinnitus is very likely to be caused from cochlear damage which was the result of a serious inner ear infection.

When you suffer cochlea damage, the millions of tiny hairs (known as cilia) in the inner ear are damaged and your hearing suffers as a result. These hairs get bent out of shape or even broken. What happens then is that electrical impulses are sent randomly to the brain which are interpreted as sound.

  • What this means in simple terms is that your brain receives these signals which it then interprets as sound, even though no sound is present, and that is what you are experiencing, tinnitus.
  • Our cochlear damage tinnitus remedy works to heals the damage to those tiny hairs in the inner ear.

    Whilst we have had very good success in 85% of all tinnitus cases, there is unfortunately nothing that can be done regarding the lost hearing, as this is not reversible. You can however look forward to a dramatic lowering of those with a high degree of expectation.

    If you go to this page > cochlear damage tinnitus remedy you will be able to discover a lot more about this tinnitus type and how we can help you. You will also be able to order the tinnitus treatment remedies from that page.

    The remedies are completely natural in origin and will not interact with, or cause any interaction with the conventional medications you are taking at present.

    Betty I hope this helps you and keep your chin up! You can relieve your [tag-tec tinnitus symptoms]tinnitus symptoms[/tag-tec] safely.
