He added, in general, tinnitus, although annoying, is not a cause for concern, however, tinnitus that takes the form of a pulsating, rhythmic noise such as a heartbeat should be dealt with more seriously..

The sound could be buzzing, which indicates a problem with the blood vessels, says Professor Lloyd..

Third: wheezing nose.

Nasal wheezing is often the result of a buildup of mucus, possibly from the cold, which “causes abnormal airflow”, says Professor Lloyd..
