If u open my mouth as wide as i can it STOPS or i push on my neck a little it STOPS its so ez to stop but but i cant walk around with my hand on my neck forever. So any advice PLEZZ give it
The first consideration in your problem is to get an accurate diagnosis. There are several possible origins for pulsatile tinnitus, including a venous hum from a dominant jugular venous system, an aberrant internal carotid artery in the middle ear, a dural arteriovenous fistula, an abnormal growth or tumor in the middle ear or in the jugular foramen.
The fact that you can make it go away by pushing on your neck suggests a venous hum tinnitus from a dominant jugular venous system on that side.
So, you should see an ENT and have a full evaluation, hearing test, and possible imaging to confirm the cause.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
