Doubt it: Honestly, i doubt it very much!Get a more detailed answer ›
I often hear a pulsating/swishing sound in the back of my head (has happened for over a year). Could this indicate an aneurism or other serious issue?
Unlikely to be: anything more than wax build up in your ears but certainly if it worries you I would suggest you make an appointment with a health care provider to give you a thorough evaluation. He/She will want to know more about your family history and will want to examine you. Unlikely you will need testing if a thorough examination is made. ...Read more
Would a 11mm node in the jugular region make my neck have a lot of discomfort with ear pain ringing? Could it be pressing on something?
Pinched Nerve: The node you are discussing could be pinching on a nerve that travels into the ear region resulting in the ringing. If you are sick, once you are better the node will decrease in size and help this issue. However, if it does not, you may want to be evaluated further by a ENT doctor. ...Read more

My child has been referred to a neurosurgeon due to a narrow carotid artery in the neck. Why is that?
Carotid artery: The carotid artery is one of the main suppliers of blood to the brain and narrowing within this vessel is a major cause of stroke in the us. Narrowing is often found in older adults and a result of atherosclerosis, but in children the cause is commonly fibromuscular dysplasia. Treatment depends on whether your child has had stroke-like symptoms. Vascular surgeons and neurosurgeons can treat fmd. ...Read more

Pain in right eye when looking up or to the left. Could this be brain aneurysm or something serious?
I can't figure: why you're posting on HealthTap instead of getting yourself to a doctor pronto if you're worried about something as scary as a cerebral aneurysm. Pain in 1 eye ONLY on elevation or nasal deviation ONLY sounds like an eye, not a brain, problem. See an ophthalmologist & have a formal extraocular movement evaluation. May not be dangerous but could turn out to be chronic & debilitating if not treated. ...Read more

OTC and DDS: Take some over the counter pain medication that you would normally take for a headache (advil, motrin, aleve, (naproxen) etc), apply cold compress on and off every 15 minutes for the first day only! make sure that you see a dentist to rule out any damage to your teeth, gums, bone, etc. ...Read more

I got into an accident and it caused a mild whiplash which has lead to some spasming in my neck. but also have neck grinding noise. what is that?
If there is some de-: -generation present or even ligament injury, there is noise made with motion.

When i listen with a stethoscope, i am not able 2 hear the noises people hear when moving their neck. ...Read more
1 week after osteopath manipulated neck I have headaches and dizziness. Could this be my IIH or an artery dissection in neck?? GP says not to worry.
Headache post manip: The short answer is yes, but its unlikely. Talk to the osteopath. Manipulation can also cause some of the head and neck muscles to spasm which can cause traction headaches. This is the far more likely cause of your headaches. If the headache subsides by putting heat on your neck and lying down, its not something drastic. ...Read more

It's like an internal clicking I hear when I walk inside the top of my head almost like someone is tapping a coin against my skull, what is it?
Tapping noise: skull: Your body is mostly liquid, and as you may know from swimming with your head under water, sounds in water are transmitted loudly. The noise you describe is probably from a joint in your shoulder or hip which may be "heard" while walking. It probably is not serious, but if it continues, see an orthopedic doctor or an internist to determine the cause. ...Read more
I have had this clicking of my right jaw area, my internal med doctor said its not my ear but jaw. What could be causing this?
Feels like a needle on the inner side of right eye. After a long day of work (@ computer) i get a small stroke on the spot. It's been years w/ this.
Computer eye prob: Many computer screens emit radiation that exacerbates dry eye. Reading anything, including a computer screen, one does not blink as frequently - also causing dryness. Once the eye is dry, the radiation from the screen can make a mild burn. Artificial tears taken a few times throughout the day help a great deal. See your eye md for confirmation. Radiation shields fit over the screen. They help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have ETD. I am a runner. When I run lately I hear a clicking sound in my inner ear which stops if I walk. Is it harmful to keep running?
ETD in runners: Your ENT specialist would be in a better position to answer this question knowing your medical history and having discussed treatment options. For a chronic condition like ETD, a regular activity like jogging shouldn't be too risky while a bit annoying. I would make sure you give yourself regular breaks to make sure your condition keeps returning to normal, while you seek additional advice. ...Read more

Need to examine:
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. The usual causes are normal noise from joints and sometimes from fluid in the ear. It would be prudent to see your doctor at your convenience.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
