Pulsatile tinnitus: this sounds like your are troubled by pulsatile tinnitus. this has a list of cause , mostly benign. I would recommend that you see your doctor when you have time (not urgent...no ER needed). sometimes we evaluate the blood vessels in head/neck with MRI/MRA to make sure nothing is going on to cause your symptoms
