Take a gander at a diagnosis?
I am going to list some symptoms and tell me what you think, I'm going to see my doctor tomorrow, but tell me what you think anyways. Certain symptoms: -Continuous tinnitus, dominant in left ear but is present in right, appeared June 17th 09 has lasted for nearly 3 weeks now. -Very light tinnitus, easily covered, light humming only -Random periods of excessive yawning, tired easily, excessive sleep(10+ hours every night) -Ears can apparently 'pop' without end, i.e. ascending/descending in a plane, although somewhat quieter; the 'popping' sensation is felt differently different in the left ear from the right. -At time will experience pain in the inner ear, usually the left ear, but sometimes in the right. -The intensity of the humming in the right ear sometimes rises to become more prevalent than that of the left ear. -Shifting movement is sometimes heard/felt in the right ear. -If external noise is greatly reduced, heartbeat becomes apparent. -Ticking noises, such as clocks, seems to worsen it as long as the ticking is present. (Pulsatile?) Uncertain symptoms: -Seems to fluctuate in intensity, sometimes quieter/louder even without changes in environment. -Left eyelid will at times create a strange 'wet' smacking noise when blinking. -Strange feelings sometimes felt in skull; phantom? sensation of being hit in the middle of forehead day after noticing tinnitus partly asleep, may have been from forgotten dream; strange pulsing felt on top of the temple. -Sinus infection may be present, somewhat unusual amount of nasal mucus in the nostrils, seems to be heavier on the left. -Continuous tinnitus may have become quieter over the past weeks since it was first noticed. -Some pain in the mouth, predominantly on the left side, upper and lower, seems to be between teeth in the gums. -Remaining hearing may have become more sensitive, or simply paying more attention to sounds. If ear is rested on own skin, can hear blood-flow. -Some sounds seem to cause the tinnitus to become temporarily louder/softer; abruptly turning a water faucet on then off seems to increase loudness; after showering, the tinnitus seems much quieter for some time. An unusual thing of note: a few weeks after the symtoms appeared, I woke up with the tinnitus in my left ear completely gone, just up and vanished, I could still hear the tinnitus in my right ear, but my left ear was mercifully silent. However I went back to sleep, and when I woke again it had reappared.

Pulsatile tinnitus, have had it for years, never had an MRI?
I have Meniere's Disease and normally just have loud, loud tinnitus in my right ear - constantly. I've lost most of the hearing in my right ear. Sometimes, however, it pulses with my heart and this worries me greatly. I was first diagnosed with Meniere's Disease when I was 13 years old. I have seen many doctors. But something that has fallen through the cracks is this: when I was 15, I was supposed to have an MRI. However, I got very claustrophobic and could not carry through with it. I was meant to be in again, to be rescheduled, but it fell through the cracks and we all forgot about it. The cause of my pulsatile tinnitus was never found. I had an EKG when I was 16. I am 21 now. Doctors have sort of labelled me "Meniere's Disease" and decided that that is that and there can be no treatment because doctors don't know anything about Meniere's Disease. Lately I am scared that if it is something serious causing the occasional pulsatile tinnitus in my right ear, it has gone undiagnosed for so many years. This terrifies me to the point where I am scared to go in to see the doctor. What could be causing this? What should I do? Could this be genetic? My mom has the same pulsatile tinnitus but has never seen a doctor about it. I didn't know that it could be serious until now, really.
