pulsating tinnitus

at age 69 have developed pulsating tinnitus in left ear-  bothers me when ever my blood pressure rises due to exertion , waking up, or anxiety.  I have been taking low does seroquel (50mg) for insomnia for 8 months and I think that may have caused this to happen as tinnitus is a side effect in some people.

Maybe it has to do with aging-  I am in no pain, but sometimes the ear feels full like eustachian tube is not functioning properly.  

Anti Histamines dont affect it,  alcoholic drinks seem to make it better,  lack of alcohol makes it worse-  it gets worse when you think about it-  seems to go away during the day with lots of noise
