Suggest treatment for pulsatile tinnitus

Hello! I developed Pulsatile Tinnitus in October 2013 in my left ear. It hasn t stopped since! Around the same time I developed dizziness and nausea and occasional rushes from my heart up through my neck. I have had CT scans and seen a cardiologist......they say everything appears normal.....yet it is destroying my nerves and my life.

General Surgeon 's  Response
usually the cause for pulsatile tinnitus is glomus tympanicum, a benign vascular tumour of middle ear or Miniere's disease where endolymphatic symptom is dilated. you will have to undergo a special CT (HRCT TEMPORAL BONE).Get a ENT surgeon opinion done and get your ears examined.it is less likely a cardiac cause. if its a mienere's ds you can avoid too much salt in your diet,smoking,tea ,coffee,chocolates,cheese. for symptomatic t/t take TAB STEMETIL MD STAT AND SOS. START WITH BIHISTINE (VERTIN).
