I just googled clicking in head because when I go jogging I hear the clicking in the back on my head on the right side. It is so annoying. It has happened before when I was walking then it went away for a few years. Then the other day I was jumping on the trampoline and it started up again. I can only hear it if I am jumping or jogging so it makes me think my brain is dislodged(haha) It doesn''t hurt but I do get dizzy often so I wonder if that is related. I am glad to read there are others out there with this.

I have exactly the same clickign sound in my head. Its located in the left side of the head. I went to the doctor and he said to me, hold your nose and pop with the ears like 10 times a day. It dosnt help iv had this now 5 days. Im only 18 and here in sweden it seems they dont have a clue what the hell it is. Like you describe the sound comes when you walk or bounce with your head. I do not experience any pain associated with this but i find it very annoying. I have found out that if you grab your scalp and squize it on the area the sound comes from , you wont here it as long as you hold on that point. I really doubt that it is something inside the brain because if it would be it dosnt matter if you press on it , it wouldnt stop. Because the cranium that surrounds the brain is almost as hard as steel. You couldnt possibly press hard enough to make it stopp. But still it worries me i dont want to die god damnit, i could say that i got this 5 ago, when i was under a lot of emontinal trauma maybe it has something to do with stress. Good luck with, we gonna need it .

click in head
Omg as read all these posts i had a slight chuckle as i have beeen getting the clicking noise(fingernail tap) lately thought was going crazy til i googled this. mine i think is associated with back or neck as i get it mostly when i walk forward on left leg click,,click,click.i work as checkout operater in supermarket for about 20 years and also was a figure skater thoughout my teens so i have probably got some kind arthritis going on from all the falls.so i'm putting down to back or neck injury.i think the herniated discs in early posts are cause of my problem.i will be asking my dr next time i go,although from what i'm reading here i'm gonna come up with no answer....so click..click..click i'm glad im not going crazy,but if this persists i will be

I have experienced a clicking in my head since I was 12 - now 32. It is very simialr to when your wrist clicks or shoulder but is situated at the top of my head and sometimes it is so loud people can hear it. Not sure if it is related but I also cannot jump on a tramopline without experiencing a pain in my head on each bounce - almost like my brain is moving and pulling on something inside my head - strange, maybe it is just so small it is rattling around in there !!!

Re: clicking in the head
Well I'm glad I'm not alone when it comes down to having head troubles. I've been experiencing Constant Migrain headaches since 1991... I'm 35 now and Still have stupid headaches. It scares the hell out of me sometimes, but I always keep it movin'. Just recently I've been experiencing Pressure headaches in the back of my head, along with a "Clicking Sound" on the right side of my head, behind my ear, thats just annoying the hell out of me. If anyone has any solutions please let me know. Thanks...

Just got clicking sound few months ago
I just got this clicking sound a few months ago. Top right of my head. Doesn't hurt at all but is incredibly annoying. I'm 34, very active. Clicking only happens when I'm descending at a certain pace, like walking quickly down stairs, running, or jumping. After a period of time, clicks can abate a little, similar to a joint that has already been cracked. I set up a doctor's appt but after reading this message board, don't think I'm going to get any answers. I do feel better seeing that others are having this problem!

I'm facing the same problem to.After reading numerous comments from other website,I realised that meeting your GP doesn't really work.

I used to go to GP and they kept giving me stress pill,the more I ate it,the more tight my head will be.But when I feel relax,clicking sound will start to produce all over my head.The sound like people tapping with their fingernails.

I decided to meet a chiropractor.I was asked to do an X-ray and found out that my cervical spines are misaligned.When the bones are twisted,the blood vessels tend to narrow.Blood are not able to follow to your brain.In addition,the bones are protected by muscles.The muscles tend to contract and relax causing a tight or clicking sensation.Disturbance and irritation to the blood vessels will send wrong signal to the brain.Thus you will have all sorts of weird pains around your head caused by irritation to the blood vessels and muscles.

I advise you to see a specialist who knows about spine,bones and nerves.I'm sure they are able to identify problems which GPs can't.Besides,GPs are not able to solve all sorts of human problems.You can't meet a GP if you happened to crack your leg and need a cast.

Clicking in head, Migraine for months, Temporary blindness
There is a clicking in the back of my head that began several weeks ago. I have had a headache for 2 weeks. I experience dizziness & vertigo. My eyes hurt all the time and it's difficult for me to ... Do anything! I can barely turn my head or move my eyes. Once on a while the pain let's up slightly but it never goes away. I have been unable to sleep @ night for a week now & I hear this clicking in the very back and base of my skull. I go blind many times a day and I lose focus constantly. I am irritable because of it. I can't keep up with my house or my children the way I did. It's especially difficult for me to concentrate and see in the mornings and in sunlight.

Hi everyone,

I started getting the clicking in my head (right hand side, about 2cm in from the skin, near the back) around a year ago. I've had multiple MRI scans, and nothing severe was there.

The only thing the doctors and I can think of is that there is a pocket of air that may or may not contain a liquid. When the humidity rises, it starts clicking when I walk, indicating that something changes. We've guessed that this raises the level of the liquid just far enough to start affecting the air pocket.

It's sort of like water in a clear tub with a long island across the middle. Normally, the fluid is low enough so that it simply washes up onto the island, but when more liquid is added, it flows over the island and hits the glass wall on the other side.

We have no idea where this liquid would come from, and why the brain would both absorb and leak it, but it's the only explanation we can come up with.

(To verify this, I do actually have one of these air/liquid pockets, but it was only picked up in the last scan.)

It's not life threatening, but if you are experiencing pain from it, it could be different or the same condition knocking against one of your nerves or your spine. If you get pain, go to the doctor. If it's just annoying (and sometimes makes your vision go blurry for a millisecond or two), don't worry too much.

Clicking and Chiari?
I am so glad that you are talking about this. I have had this problem since I was in elementary school and walking home from the bus...hearing the click, click, click with every step.

I have recently been diagnosed with Chiari I Malformation, a rare congenital disorder that affects less than 1% of the general poplulation. It is a problem in the neck at the base of the skull. It is diagnosed with an MRI.

I really think that the clicking might be related to the Chiari. Most Chiarians do not even know they have the condition because in most people that have Chiari they do not experience any symptoms. I, however, experience most of the Chiari symptoms.

Maybe it is related and maybe it is not, but I wonder...

Any thoughts?
