Loud grinding sound in base of scull (neck) when turning head. Strong occipital headache. Have Ehlers Danlos. Is it chiari malformation? Other cause?

Loud grinding sound in base of scull (neck) when turning head. Strong occipital headache. Have Ehlers Danlos. Is it chiari malformation? Other cause?

See your doctor: The grinding is generally a sign of digerati on in the facets, or neck joints. As an ED person, your ligaments which hold the bones in place are most likely lax, allowing excess movement. While, this could. Rear a chairing type malformation, I think arthritis is a more common answer. An X Ray will be telling

C/o Doppler heartbeat sound in left ear worse with turning head but stops when pressing on carotid artery. Ent says ears are perfect?

C/o Doppler heartbeat sound in left ear worse with turning head but stops when pressing on carotid artery. Ent says ears are perfect?

Vascular prob or BP: Your ears ARE perfect - they are hearing the quiet sounds of your heartbeat in the internal carotid artery (next to ear). 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

Cicking sound every time I turn my head to the left. What could this be?

Cicking sound every time I turn my head to the left. What could this be?

Clicking sound: The spine has joints at every level. As you turn your head the joints slide in two dimensions. The clicking is probably related to some oddity in one of those joints. If you are not having any pain and the range of motion in your neck is normal (and you have no tingling/numbness in your arms/hands) then its nothing to worry about.

Headaches: I'm a little but powerful way you describe your headaches I would suggest that you see a neurologist as quickly as possible. You should get a CT scan of the head first and maybe an MRI after the CT scan results are available. A full and complete examination especially neurological examination would be very important at this time

Arthritis: This usually represents some arthritis in the neck. The sound comes from the vertebrae not moving smoothly as you turn your head. Or flex neck. It may not be present all the time and there does not have to be any pain involved. If you start to have pain and cracking see your doctor. It is important to set your car headrest so the neck cannot snap way back. Protect your neck from jerking movements.

Depends: It depends on what you are describing as a pinging sound. Usual sounds in the head could be an indication of what is described as tinnitus. Tinnitus can be benign, but can also indicate blood flow across a high pressure vascular bed, such as seen in a fistula or abnormal blood vessels in the brain. It these symptoms continue, it may be wise to see a doctor for further evaluation.

Why do I here a rice Krispy sound when I turn my head left all right and up and down?

Why do I here a rice Krispy sound when I turn my head left all right and up and down?

Air in Eustachians: That is likely air moving around in your Eustachian tubes, which connect the inner ear to the upper airway (just behind the back of the mouth). If you have some congestion it can trap air in that tube, and you can hear it moving around as you turn your head.
