Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

Expert:  drphophalia replied 2 months ago.

Your symptoms of heart pounding in head, hurting of eyeballs, headaches and seeing lines warrant following investigations;

1) Hormonal evaluation (these symptoms can be due to menopause)

2) A complete blood cell count, an autoimmune panel (ANA, sedimentation rate, rheumatoid factor),

3) MRI of the brain and internal auditory canals.

4) MR angiographic scanning; in this a dye is injected and looks at the blood vessels of the brain (as defects in them may be causative for this sound).

The causes can be; Anemia (decreased hemoglobin), Thyroid hormone imbalance, aberrant internal carotid artery , High jugular bulb, glomus lesions etc.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
