For almost a year I have been having pulsatile tinnitus on my left ear, visual disturbances, strong pulsing in my upper body, lightheadedness and irregular heartbeats. The lightheadedness is so bad, I kind of feel as If I am in a dream sometimes...it's scary. The pulsing is so strong that when I am lying down I feel my body moving a bit along with every pulse.These symptoms are 24/7! I also get extremely dizzy and can not see for a few seconds when I stand up too quickly and there is extreme pressure on my chest when that happens.
I am 19 years old. I am overweight and I used to have high cholesterol but I got that under control. I have had blood work but everything came out normal. My blood pressure is normal. I've had an EKG, Echocardiogram, MRI w/ and w/o contrast of my brain, CT scan w/ and w/o contrast of my temporal bones and inner ears, 24 hour holter monitor and Carotid Artery Doppler.
Everything came out just fine except for the holter monitor which showed I had irregular heartbeats but I knew that already.
I am worried it might be something with my circulation or an aneurysm in an artery in my chest that is causing all of this increase in blood flow
