I Can Hear Swishing Sound In My Neck Turn My Head
So dificult: I can't really tell you matter of fact whether there are voices or not. I do take care of patients with problems and I tell them one comforting thing. If you are in my office asking me if what you are experiencing is abnormal, the chances are, you know what normal is. The most disturbed people I have seen argue that they do not have a problem, the people around them do. ...Read more

Not necessarily: Sometimes blockages within the arteries of the neck can cause "swishing" sounds. The medical term for this is a "bruit". In the neck this is most often from the carotid artery. The sound is created by turbulence in the blood vessel created when the blood is flowing past a blockage / narrowing. A very simple and non-invasive test for narrowing in the carotid arteries is a carotid ultrasound. ...Read more

When I turn my head it sounds like grinding sand in my neck. It doesn't hurt, but I can hear it. Any idea what's wrong?
Neck "noise": This is a common experience for many people. It is usually associated with degeneration (think about arthritis) in the neck. This often results with normal aging but is also often the result of sports related injuries or the result of heavy manual labor. The problem can be worse when osteoporosis/osteopenia is present. ...Read more

I hear a rushing sound and feel a sensation of fluid in the back of neck going to the base of my head sometimes for years please tell me what this is?
No worries: I have heard this phenomenon described by many patients. It is nothing to worry about. I believe it to be coming from movement of the neck joints. These include joints between the skull and the first neck bone called the atlas, and a pair of facet joints at every disc level below that. That's a lot of joints that move, potentially resulting in a sound or fluid sensation. ...Read more

Sometimes feel something moving inside of back head / neck and hear like a gerggly sound at the same time what is this from? Also daily headaches
Crepitus: The "gerggly" sounds coming from the neck are likely crepitus--created when two rough surfaces in the body come into contact—for example, in osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis when the cartilage around joints has eroded away and the joint ends grind against one another. It can result from trauma or repetitive stress/sleeping position. With headaches, can be problematic. Seek referral w/ pcp. ...Read more

I have a clicking sound in the back of my head. It’s not my ears or my neck popping. The sound is inside my head. No one can hear it, just me.?
Neck bones: Rubbing against each other very near to the ear canals (so you're basically "hearing" it by the feel) is still the most likely possibility. It probably is not worth worrying about unless you also have pain or have had an injury. In which case, see a doctor and get some x-rays. ...Read more
I am hearing a fluid sound in the back of head and neck on occasion. Like if water was going through a tight hose or something, What does this mean?
Sound: If the fluid sound occurs without head movements you could be experiencing intermittent tinnitus which may emanate from the inner ear. If the sounds occur with head movements they may come from structures like neck ligaments or vertebrae moving. Occasionally sounds are of blood circulating through blood vessels. Have your physician examine your blood pressure as well as ears, neck, carotid artery ...Read more

Tension type: Headache. There is no evidence that white noise can cause headaches. The symptoms you have presented are similar with tension type headache. The headaches are usually bilateral and diffuse and often have tenderness in the cervical muscles (neck) as well as the pericranial muscles. Rec.: see orofacial pain/headache specialist. ...Read more

I have a humming in my right ear for 7 months, when you tap on my skull, neck or sinus area you can hear a hollow sound. What is this?
Not sure...: Humming or ringing in one's ears should be evaluated by your md. Both air and bone conduction tests will distinguish between sensory, neural, and conductive hearing loss. Although the "hollow" sound you describe sounds like a normal tapping sound, if you're concerned an evaluation would be appropriate. ...Read more

In my left ear I constantly hear a swooshing heart beat sound. The only time it stops is when I press on the artery on my neck with my fingers, why?
I press my neck and hear blood flow in left ear, not pulsating. Not in my right. Though my right ear bruises up with sound. Afraid of some blood cloth.
See your Dr: While a 21yo male, if healthy, is unlikely to have "blood clot" issue, what you describe might be related to the vessels, and should be evaluated further to be certain. See your dr, might be able to clear issue with exam, or ultrasound or other test. Meanwhile, stop pushing on your neck ;). ...Read more
I have had an ear ache for a week now, with a feeling of stopped up. I hear muffled sounds out of it feels like fluid in it. Have PND, clear throat al?
Pain followed by muffled sounds is from an infection followed by mucus fluid in the ear. Try a vasoconstictive nose drops to the effected side, but the drops need to go to the opening to the middle ear. Pretend the drops are going into the ear and dropping to the floor.
use Clear. Ease™lozenges, one 4x a day melt in mouth between cheek and gums. This will open the ear drainage and reduce the fluid. ...Read more
Sounds like water going deep inside in my right ear occasionally. Dull pain, no hearing loss, not constant. Also have a sore throat.?
Eustachian tube dysf: Sounds like a Eustachian tube dysfunction. You may try to "pop" the ears by closing your mouth holding the nose and blowing hard. Your ears should open up as you are forcing air into the middle ear space thru the Eustachian tube. Also get some Flonase and your nasal congestion will improve as well. Good luck and feel better. ...Read more

I have been experiencing a fizzle sound in my neck every now and then and I hear like a moraca noise in my neck everytime I take a step when walking.
Interesting: Interesting symptoms. First thought would be degenerative arthritis of the spine but at your age unlikely.
