High pitched ringing in ears sometimes can hear heart beat in ears when laying down on side, sometimes get head rushes idk if related. Could I have AVM?

Tinnitus: Not likely. A MRI and MRA of the brain is a good screen for an arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Tinnitus often occurs after exposure to loud noises. Pulsatile tinnitus can occur in dural AVMs but this occurs most frequently in women between 50-70 years of age. It is common to hear your heartbeat in your ears when lying down. See a neurosurgeon or neurologist to evaluate the symptoms.

I have dull headaches which are now more sharp. I hear high pitched ringing in ears and also buzzing. I feel a sharp neck pain at base of skull. Could it be a TMJ flare up? What should I do?

Likely TMJ: Headaches and ear pain are many of the presenting chief complaints of patients with tmj. You can sort out the ringing by protruding your jaw forward when the ringing occurs. It protrusion of you jaw changes or eliminates the ringing sound then there is a jaw connection. Either way you should see a dentist specially trained in tmj.

Can taking Concerta cause someone to develop tinnitus? Didn't take Concerta today, but suddenly developed high pitched squeal in ears.

Stimulant tinnitus?: For better or worse, tens of millions of people have been on stimulant therapy. We've been using stimulants since the 50s for weight loss and then subsequent decades for ADHD. It is highly unlikely that Concerta is the culprit. Antibiotics though have well known neurotoxic effects including hearing loss and tinnitus.
