Specializes in Urgent Care

Follow up: The most common cause of non pulsatile tinnitus is Noise Induced Hearing Loss. You should have a formal test with audiology even if you feel that you have no hearing loss. You should also be scoped by the ENT to rule out a patulous eustachian tube. Then you should have an MRI of the IAC to rule out masses or lesions that may contribute. Try white noise. Good luck to you. Follow up with Neurology.
