hello and welcome to HCM,
Imagine a pipe which is delivering water to an area and you can hear the flow, if you press on the pipe the flow as well as the sound will stop!
Now imagine the pipe to be your blood vessel delivering blood to the area and making that sound because of high pressure flow (the cause of the high pressure within the vessel must be investigated) and when you press on the neck where the main part of the vessel lies, the flow reduces and the sound stops!!
The same thing is happening when you are experiencing cloudiness in your eyes!
Now this is what you have to do:
1. Since you are getting what we call a vascular tinnitus
for which the leading cause is arteriosclerosis
(a deposit of fat within the vessel wall causing the narrowing of the vessel and flow); you need to be fully evaluated both for the flow and for the causes. Meet a neurologist
who can help you out with the same
2. Get an ENT consult to quantify any hearing loss
and rule out any ENT cause of your problem.
take care and hope you get well soon
Come back to me if you have not understood my analogy!
