Last year I developed what I believe to be pulsatile tinnitus after a brief period of severe anxiety. I had been referred to the ENT but I was left feeling quite disappointed after a six month wait, I had to repeat a hearing test that came back 100% correct and I only managed to talk to the doctor for just a few minutes before being sent away with a sheet of paper about tinnitus. He only performed quite basic tests that my own GP has already done regarding balance etc.
I went back to the doctors today as the pulsing is getting much worse. It's effecting my sleep very badly. I can no longer sleep with ear plugs as the throbbing becomes much louder and I can FEEL it all over my head too. I've started to get quite bad earache and constant popping/cracking noise when I swallow etc. The doctor said they "can't do much about tinnitus", not pulsatile tinnitus. Although I don't really know if there's a huge difference from a medical background. She gave me some almond oil drops to help clear a "small" amount of earwax. I've tried it and its made my ears so much worse, completely blocking my right ear.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm feeling quite low about it right now.
