Do you deal with Tinnitus at night or when laying down?
aquielisunari posted:
It isn't a ringing but instead a sort of irregular heartbeat. My heartbeat has a certain cadence. This does not. It is VERY irritating. I can lay down right now ON MY BACK and the beating starts. I can't sleep on my back because of it. IMPOSSIBLE. That noise keeps me awake and is of course irritating. I also have ocular migraines if that's relevant. No irregularities as far as being louder in either ear.

I'm so glad to hear someone else mention the strange sensation in the ear. I have a fan running at night so I don't notice it then. However, I get the "throbbing" in my ears when I turn my head from side to side. It's very subtle so I don't always notice it. I feel slightly dizzy at the same time. I thought at first it was due to a change in medication but I stopped taking it and the sensation continued.

I also suffer from migraines, but not ocular.

I hope there's someone out there that has an answer....

I have a constant bilateral ear noise. The best description is chirping crickets with the pulsing sensation. If you could imagine being locked in a box with thousands of crickets with the sensation of hearing your pulse beat all at the same time, when you might understand the noise I hear. I've had hearing test done by two different ENT specialist. The last one told me that the noise was coming from my brain searching for soft sounds which I cannot hear. I personally think he was telling me a bunch of crap as I don't believe he really has a true answer. He stated, "you wanted an answer and I've given you one". Your thoughts appreciated.
