I have been having this sound for the past 6 months now of like crunching crackling gritty sound when i turn my head side to side or rotate it around in a circle. the sound stops once my head is still. The sound does not sound or feel like its coming from neck sound like its behind my nose somewhere.
I also have thick mucus feeling in the back of my throat which i can only get out if i forcefully snort and clear my throat.
I have been to the ENT and my family dr and both say it is allergies and give me nasal sprays and send me off, no exray, mri or anything.
I have no feeling of nasal congestion, plugged ears or any allergy symptoms.
My husband can even hear the crunching sound when he stands next to me.
I am getting very worried that maybe this is something other then anything to do with my so called allergies as nothing is making it go away.
I want to go back to my dr but im worried that she will start to get sick of me for coming in for the same problem so much ... last time i was there was 3 weeks ago.
Does this sound like something to do with allergies or the ears nose throat to anyone?
Thanks for your reply but i realy dont think the noise is coming from my neck ... i can still hear it when i turn my whole body side to side using my hips so my neck and head are level with each other.
It almost sounds like liquid moving around like a crackling crunching sound.
Yes, I had ringing in my ears, which also helped when I went to the chiropractor. If I would shrugg my shoulders my ears would ring. When I would do my VOR stablization exercises, it sounded my neck bones were rubbing on each other.
Im in my 16th month of BPPV and some kind of vestibular weakness that the doc never defined, but I am recovering very well...feels like the end is near. I just have blips here and there.
Yes I had loads of other things going on as well, I had stiff neck and shoulders, a sensation of loud noises making my nose itch (weird that one) a ringing in the ears that went when I put my head on one side, the noise I made chewing food was unbearable, a dripping noise when going from lying to sitting, ears would click continually when talking on the phone as well.
no i have no other symptoms at all other then the thick mucus in the back of my throat ... i was thinking maybe it is mucus that is trapped somewhere behine my nose and that is what i hear? The ENT checked my ears and said there was no fluid and also did a hearing test so i dont know if it is fluid or not.
