I only get lightheadedness. I've been dealing with lightheadedness on and off for a year .I've been experiencing the pulsating wooshing sound for about 6 months . It's only of I turn my head a certain way or lie a certain way

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, it seems something like a dysfunctioning eustachian tube, since it happens only when you turn your head or lie in a certain way.

Still, you need to see an ENT specialist for a clinical examination.

Try sleeping with your head propped up in an elevated position.
Take OTC Decongestant or Antihistamine tablets
Try Valsalva maneuver
-Take a breath in. Then, try to breathe out gently with your mouth closed and pinching your nose. In this way, no air is blown out but you are gently pushing air into the Eustachian tube. If you do this you may feel your ears go 'pop' as air is forced into the middle ear. This sometimes eases the problem.

Monitor your blood pressure also.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Waiting for your response.

Thanks.
