Pulsating tinnitus both ears
From this study (5 months ago):
I was diagnosed with TMJ (causing my intermittent tinnitus of my right ear- which has decreased) and was given Zoloft for my anxiety which both my ENT, GP, and behavioral health doctor assured me was the reason for my TMJ and my intermittent tinnitus.
From this study (7 months ago):
My ears were bothering me last week and were clogged and had ringing in the ears. I got them cleaned and the ringing was still there. I noticed it even more when I raised my Zoloft intake.
