I hope you're all keeping well in lockdown and the end of winter! I'm just posting this out there to see who can relate. I get pulsatile tinnitus quite regularly, especially when I'm stressed, in a flare, or whenever I lie down to go to sleep. It keeps me up quite often, and can make my ears feel red-hot and throbbing.
This has been going on for years and is no news, but recently my ears are burning up a lot more frequently, even when I feel okay in myself. I have also developed the more classic tinnitus of ringing in my ears which is there 24/7 like a bomb just went off. I'm also getting sudden waves of hearing loss in both ears which goes away after a minute or so.
I know this can be caused by hydroxychloroquine, but wondered if anyone else had experienced both pulsatile and classic tinnitus and whether it's anything to be concerned about?
I also have scaly dry skin inside both ears, so certainly have some discoid activity there it seems.
