What causes a fizzing sound in the back of head?

I barely started to notice this a few months ago whenever i lay down I'll get this weird fizzing sound in the lower back of my head neck area not all the time but it happens often. Now it happens when I sit up never did that before and it is getting louder i even heard it in my ear. I really don't think it's tinnitus either because it's the back of my head doing it not in my ears. Anyone have any idea what this is?

Re: What causes a fizzing sound in the back of head?

vibratory tinnitus. yes it is a weird vibrating sound in the back of the head and can hear it. TMJ can be its cause as well. You can get tmj so bad turns into vibratory tinnitus. Go to a maxillary surgeon who specializes in tmj ans get a soft splint for your mouth and hopefully within a few weeks youll feel much better. i would also just go to your reg. dr. and let him know. Its always good to take the blood and make sure no lyme disease or anything like that.

Re: What causes a fizzing sound in the back of head?

I do have TMJ but it hasn't gotten any worse it's been pretty much the same for a few years now but this noise did start happening after recent dentist visits maybe that did it? Well at least that's when I started to notice it. I don't know but thanks for the help. If it causes any pain or gets worse I'll probably see a doctor and ask If it can be related to my jaw problem. I really doubt its Lyme disease I never been bit by a tick.

Re: What causes a fizzing sound in the back of head?

mine was tmj..got the soft splints and it was like a miracle.I had the back of head noise thing and tinnitus. Very annoying sensation and feeling, but thankfully fixable. I had gotten a root canal and it started after that. Luckily i had known someone who knew and had the same thing happen to them. Hopefully your feeling much better, but be sure to see a maxillary surgeon who specializes in tmj, cause otherwise they will not know what your talking about.
