Over weight, sound in the ear that doesnt stop. Done MRI to check double vision during pregnancy. Can the wooshing sound be due to the MRI?

Hello i am a 27 year old female who is over weight . I have this wooshy sound in my right ear which wont stop i press on the side of my neck and it makes it quiter. When i was pregnant with my 6 year old daughter i had a mri done to see why i had double vision around my eyes and they wanted me to have a spinal tap but because i was pregnant they couldnt. could this wooshing sound have anything to do with that this many years later?

welcome to healthcaremagic

youre 'wooshy' sound in the ear might be tinnitus, since you admit you are overweight it could be due to increased lipid levels, get a lipid profile analysis
