Hi,
The past 4-5 months i have had this weird sound of cracking/gritty like fluid moving around in my head or ears when ever i turn my head side to side or rotate it around.

There is no sound when i have my head straight and still.

I do have some thick Post nasal Drip where i have to snort hard to get it into my throat to be able to spit it out as there is nothing in my nose so it cant be blown out the nose.

I was to see my ENT and mentioned this sound and he checked my ears with the little handheld lighted thingy and said there was no fluid in my ears and to see my dentist. He also did a hearing test which was normal.

Dentist said it wasnt anything to do with my teeth jaw.

So now 2 months i am going back to the ENT next month why i dont know if he already told me there was no fluid what else can he do?

Im getting pretty worried as i am a constant worrier and always diagnose my self with the worst.

What does this sound like to you anyone?

Thanks!

unfortunately, i have no clue what could be the matter. however, i would suggest that if you're hesitant about seeing your ENT doctor, you should also schedule an appointment with your personal physician, just because that way they may be able to check out a wider base of problems, and then if they find something could give you a referral to the correct specialist.


well, good luck

I have the same thing and it is real annoying. I'v done some research and I think we have "Cranial spinal disorder", check out cranial spinal fluid or disorder.

Arthritis?
I also have the gritty sound when I turn my head side to side

I'm assuming my problem is arthritis, since I also have pain in my neck and other joints makes sounds like this and are painful.


maybe it's arthritis?

I have the same symptoms...I just assume it's arthritis. It doesn't really hurt, so I haven't worried about it.

If you have arthritis in your spine you need to see a doctor to make sure there is no pressure on your spinal cord and also I would advise finding a good physiotherapist. I wish I had done that years ago - it would have saved me lots of pain! Best wishes
