Why do I hear voices in my head that sounds like people talking around me and about me?

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

When I turn my head I hear a faint swishing sound at my neck. Is this normal?

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

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.

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

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
