Hi Pat - Thanks for writing. It sounds like your doctor has focused on treating the symptoms you're experiencing. You may want to ask for a referral to an ear, nose and throat specialist ( otolaryngologist) for a more specialized examination and diagnosis of your issues since you have had the pulsating sound for so long and now have additional issues.

We are not able to provide a diagnosis, and a specialist would be your best option for care. Please stay in touch and let us know what you learn and how you're doing. We hope you feel better soon.
