Q. what causes the sound of cracking noises in the head all the time

it was said i had acute sinusitis but honestly i think it is more . I don't know why i have cracking noises in my head . I am very concerned about this also my neck is always stiff feeling and aching all the time. . My eyes are very tired and i see blue spots and they hurt behind the eye very badly . I have headaches very often
A1wow...that really sounds serious...i have chronic sinusitis and i can tell you i had horrible headaches but nothing like you describe now. i would strongly consider going to a hospital and checking it out...
tell us what was the result!
A2Gee Jennife, If I had all these things going on at once I'd be very concerned to get a proper diagnosis.
Were you, or are you on any medication for the Sinusitis? Could you be having a side affect to any meds? I don't know what to tell you but if you've been treated are still having all this trouble, you need to get a second opinion. Possibly an MRI might give a clearer picture if there is something else going on.
You should tell your doctor how you feel and that you would like to get an X'ray, MRI or a second opinion as it is causing you undue stress and worry. You have to be
persistent sometimes as some doctors don't like to be told they have misdiagnosed the problem. Good luck.

Q. Tinnitus (Ringing and Other Ear Noise)

Anybody have this problem? Urrrrrrrrrrr, I think I want to shoot myself,you know what I mean. It is worst than the chinese torture. Someone, please send me a good tip how to stop it. I have this for 4 yrs and it is driving me crazy. You cannot enjoy total complete silence. They say silence is golden but not when you have this ringgi in your ears. It gets worst when there is no noise. The only remedy I have is eating hot spicy curry, it helps for 2-3 wks and then it comes back again and then eating spicy food again. Listening to classical music helps to. Oh well.....just have to suck it up.
A1I've read that lipoflavinoids can help.
A2I think I am use to it and I will just get use to it.
I talked to others and they said there is no cure, just suck it up
A3hhmm.. sounds really disturbing. I will suggest you to go see your ENT specialist. it might be correlated with your inner structure inside your ear.

A1A migraine attack can be triggered also by caffeine consumption, alcohol consumption, certain medications, allergic reactions, physical or emotional stress, smoking, skipping meals, menstrual cycle fluctuations, menopause, and certain food containing-
1) tyramine- red wine, aged cheese, smoked fish, chicken liver, figs and some beans.
2) nitrates - like hot dogs, bacon and salami.
A2A migraine headache is often described as throbbing and usually felt on only one side of your head, but may be felt on both. A migraine may make you feel lightheaded or dizzy and/or make your stomach upset. You may see spots or be sensitive to light, sounds and smells. If you get migraines, chances are one of your parents or other family members also have had this problem. Not all headaches require medical attention. Some result from missed meals or occasional muscle tension and are easily remedied. But some types of headache are signals of more serious disorders, and call for prompt medical care. Sensitivity to light is a standard symptom of the two most prevalent types of migraine headache: classic and common. The major difference between the two types is the appearance of neurological symptoms 10 to 30 minutes before a classic migraine headache.
Hope this helps.
