If the noise happens to coincide with your heart rate then you should get an MRI. I had a swooshing sound that would speed up and slow down depending on my heart rate. The first doctor I saw told me it was water in my ear so I self referred to an ENT who ordered the MRI which is where they saw a mass that was created by the blood from a slow leaking aneurysm or dural arteriovenous fistula behind my eye. It was fixed at UCSF and I am forever grateful to the doctors there for taking such good care of me and to the ENT who believed me and ordered the MRI.

I get a gurgling almost snapping/bubble popping sound that feels like it goes up or down my throat in the neck area. It usually happens when I lay down but sometimes after I swallow. I have not went to the doctors for it yet cause it just started about 1 month ago but it is really frustrating I can understand why it bothers you so much. I think the Best bet is your local ENT.

Hi did you ever find a solution for this? I get this same weird gurgle in throat or crackling in neck (can't tell), particularly when I'm lying on my back, and I have no idea what it is and it's freaking me out! Had it for about 2 months now...
