When you turn your head or press on your neck, you are restricting that flow, hence the changes in the intensity of the sound. The most common cause for this is high blood pressure (BP) or hypertension. Other vascular causes are rare. Get your BP checked & keep a log book of Sx ...Read more

He/she may advise that you need further evaluation by a psychiatrist in order to be sure that this is not a mental disorder of some sorts.Only a specialist can help you in this situation.
