    I hear bagpipes prior to sleep. It is in the back ground and seriously annoying racy tune. I fall into sleep with it and I suddenly wake up with a huge popping sound, like a wine cork popping then I get awake. Anxiety is there too but not so bad, don't know what this symptom is called.

    I can confirm that whooshing sound is due to low blood sugar in my case - happened twice. Once in the gym when I exercised without enough food and second after surgery, when I was without food for more than 18 hours. In the second case, it disappeared within seconds when I had a sugar candy... but the whooshing sound that leads to like an exploding sound while sleeping (and wakes me up) isn't blood sugar related as it happens after I have had a good meal.

    I had something exactly like this yesterday. The whooshing sound leading to a pop which woke me up. Only the whooshing sound has happened to me when sugar was low (twice - see my other comment), but this increasing pitch with pop at the end - its nothing to do with blood sugar as I had eaten well the evening before.
    Not glad its happened to you, but glad I am not alone...

    Hi @am1978,

    In the context of dysautonomia eating does not preclude a low blood sugar event, in fact it may actually precipitate one.

    In retrospect I realise most of my low blood sugar tinnitus symptoms were a result of gastric dysmotility, rapid emptying after carbohydrate heavy meals.
