Hear heart beat and swooshing sound in head. Nauseated and had trauma. Brain stem vibrates. Cause?

I hear my heart beat very loudly in my head. I feel it through out my body. I can also hear a swooshing sound in my head. The top of my head feels like it has tons of pressure and I am nauseated. Ten years ago I experienced head trauma and my brain stem will never stop vibrating but it has never bothered me before. What could be the cause?

Thanks for your question. From your history its clear that you are suffering from increased heart beat called as tacchycardia . There are numerous causes for tacchycardia. The most commonest is because of anxiety. To know the exact cause please consult your doctor for ECG and ECHO,which will guide for proper diagnosis of the condition. Beside you may have to undergo CT scan of the head to rule out brain trauma. If the CT head is normal then its due to cardic origin. But dont worry ,the most common cause for tacchycardia is anxiety. Hence calm down it may subside on its own . Best wishes
