Oftentimes these can cause nausea, light sensitivity, and fatigue in addition to the pain.

What can I take for a headache that won't cause pulsatile tittinitus to get worse?

Tylenol is good: If it is a tension headache, acetaminophen (also called Tylenol) often works very well. This is unlikely to worsen pulsatile tinnitus. If you believe that your headache is actually caused by the pulsatile tinnitus, though, that is something that should be evaluated by a doctor in person.

Get checked out: A good start at finding potential headache triggers would be to maintain a diary. Every time you have a headache write down what you were doing, the foods you ate that day, alcohol, smoking, caffeine, stress, how much sleep you had the night before, eye strain, etc. Try to find patterns in your headache so that you can learn what things to avoid. Get checked by your doctor.
