Tinnitus: The best course of action is to visit a physician. Pulsatile tinnitus from a vascular source, and tinnitus due to an acoustic neuroma need to be ruled out first. The most common kind of tinnitus is non-pulsatile and caused by Noise- Induced Hearing Loss. Tests to diagnose include hearing tests, scope of the eustachian tube, MRI and imaging studies, physical exam, and laboratory tests. Good luck.
