Hearing Voices In Your Head
"hearing voices" in the absence of actual people talking is referred to as an auditory hallucination. There is a large number of potential medical and/or psychological causes for such an experience. In some cases such as during transition from awake to sleeping (or vice versa), this can occur which, in the absence of contributory ...Read more
Hearing heartbeat in left ear when laying and changing position. Short periods of muffled hearing in same ear. Daily headaches in back of head.
Likely noncaddiac: Normal heart beats can frequently be heard by patients when they lie on their side or ear. It's a common complaint i hear in the office. We title it "cardiac awareness". Uncertain why it manifests itself to patients when it does. I suspect this is not a cardiac abnormality. Headaches obviously shouldn't be treated lightly. Common allergies on up to more important organic causes may be responsible. ...Read more

Loud indistinguishable screaming voices in my head accompanied with strange feelings in my head and body. What are the possibilities of a brain tumor?
Low but not zero: Sounds as if you are having auditory hallucinations and while i couldn't definitively rule out a brain tumor simply based on what you've said, my opinion is that it's not as likely as other diagnostic possibilities. Nevertheless, i think a solid neurological examination and an imaging study of the brain are well worth the trouble. All the best. ...Read more
Not hallucination: Ringing in the ears (tinnitus) is a symptom of an underlying condition. It is a common problem that tends to worsen with age and can be disruptive. It can be heard just by the sufferer or by others as well. Tinnitus can be caused by a few health conditions. A common cause is inner ear hair cell damage.

Loud, undistinguishable screaming voices inside my head accompanied with strange feelings in my head and body.. Could it be a brain tumour?
That worries me: If you hear any strange voices you need to seek counsel from your pcp. 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. It is unlikely to be due to a brain tumor especially if you have already had a MRI of the brain done. ...Read more

Many possibilities: The most common cause of ringing (tinnitus) is hearing loss. At your age, it is unlikely that the cause of your tinnitus is hearing loss, but it needs to be ruled out. Other factors may also contribute to tinnitus in the absence of hearing loss, e.g. Tmj dysfunction, excessive caffeine or alcohol consumption, medication side effect, etc. See your local ENT to further evaluate this symptom. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Earwax in my ear canal. when myself or people talk louder than normal my ear whistles. no hearing loss. ?
Earwax: I think its due to the ear wax - attenuating the sounds. I would avoid using Q tips to clean your ears. Your family doctor should be able to flush your ears out if needed and that should take care of the problem. You can try warm water and hydrogen peroxide mixed 50/50 to help loosen the wax. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

With vertigo, hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears perhaps??) you've described 3/4 symptoms of Ménière's disease, the only last symptom being headaches on the side of the hearing loss and ringing in the ear. You'd need an MRI to know that the inner ears and brain in general look OK. Treatment for this is challenging. ...Read more
