For 4 Months I've heard a loud "Whooshing" in my left ear. (It's my pulse!). Others can hear it too by placing an ear next to mine! So far, I've had an brain MRI W/Contrast (normal); MRV (normal). Waiting on results of CTA.
Last week Doctors using a stethescope discovered a BRUIT noise behind my left ear. They think it's my internal jugular vein near my sigmoid nasal passages.

I feel I will lose my mind if they cannot make the noise stop. It's so loud It wakes me up every night. At our family Christmas party, I was the freak.. Everybody lined up to hear my pulse in my left ear. Is this how I am expected to live?

For the love of God, make it stop!

  • I have had the same problem since March. Same test results. What are we supposed to do? I wonder if the cause lies below the neckline, but I can't get anyone to take me seriously.
