Pulsatile tinnitis: It's probably 'nothing' but it does warrant an exam by your doctor, an ENT, or a neurologist to rule out a range of relatively rare neuro vascular causes of this symptom. Often a clinician will get some imaging study of brain and cranial anatomy after a careful exam of blood pressure, carotid bruit, and the ears.
