I have pulsatile tinnitus and have an upcoming MRI, MRA, and blood test. My heart rate is 70 bpm, but it feels like it's "vibrating." What's going on?

In brief: Wait for study

Pulsating tinnitus can be due to many causes.
That includes nervousness as well as vascular causes. Your heart rate does not seem excessively elevated. Wait for tests to see what may be going on. By the way ultrasound of the neck is also a very good method to evaluate the vessels.
