when larger arteries blood flow not an issue, think about nerve irritation. Facial nerve trigeminal nerve, should see a neurologist, and good luck!

Can tmj cause pulsatile tinnitus and ear blockage?

Yes

Stringio
Jaw muscle dysfunction is the most common cause of jaw and ear pain, ear ringing and stuffiness. Other causes include inflammation of the jaw joint/s, headache disorders, salivary gland disease, and ear infections. Some medical illnesses can also exhibit these symptoms. Try warm compresses over the jaws, anTylenol or Advil. Consult an Orofacial Pain Dentist for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Dr. Carl W. Decker answered:

Do I need to get a MRI to figure out the cause of my pulsatile tinnitus?

MRI often used

Mri
Causes of pulsatile tinnitus include arteriovenous fistula (AVF), carotid stenosis, glomus tumor, arteriovenous malformation (AVM), aberrant carotid artery or cardiac murmur. A venous hum contributing to pulsatile tinnitus can also be caused by venous anomalies. All of these can potentially be detected by MRI (carotid stenosis would traditionally be picked-up by carotid ultrasound).

Dr. Gutti J. Rao answered:

Some other opinions, do you think a cholesteatoma can will cause pulsatile tinnitus?

Cholesteatoma

Cholesteotoma may not itself cause tinnitus but the damage to the ossicles and ear drum by chronic otitis media can cause it.

Dr. Ashu Syal answered:

Can a sinus or ear infection cause right eye pain, right temple headache, and pulsatile tinnitus in the right ear?

Yes

Ear_infection
Sinuses and ears are located close to eyes and all are interconnected. In fact, complication of infective thrombus originating from sinusitis is very well known in medical literature. If symptoms do not improve after 48 hrs of being on antibiotics, revisit your doctor.

can a sinus/ear infection cause right eye pain, temporal headaches, and pulsatile tinnitus in the ear? 26 y/o male, started 4 days ago after running

Go to ER

Your description is concerning for an aneurysm, arterial-venous fistula, or vascular dissection. I would recommend going to the emergency room as soon as possible.

Dr. Robert Knox answered:

Would pulsatile tinnitus in right ear cause dizziness, if I gently press artery in neck I get even dizzier, so does coughing or any sort of pressure .?

Pulsatile Tinnitus

Artery
No, pulsatile tinnitus does not cause dizziness. But, the cause of the tinnitus may be associated with dizziness, that is, what causes one may contribute to the other. You should see an ENT and get to the bottom of your symptoms. They suggest increased pressure inside your head or turbulent blood flow in a large vessel. Both possibilities require tests, such an MRI/MRA and carotid artery doppler.

I can hear my heartbeat in my ear. Its a thumping sound. Previously I had pulsatile tinnitus in the same ear it was relieved by ear surgery. What can cause this new thumping sound? I also have vertigo

Get evaluated again

Cancer
You may have a jugular tumor -- this would be a common presentation. Needs to be ruled out in any case. Good luck.
