resonating / vibrating sound in head and ears

edited 06/11/2012 - 9:02 AM in Recovering from Surgery
5 months ago I had an occiput to C3 fusion following a decompression surgery to remove a bony mass that was putting important pressure on my brainstem and cervical spine. Since about a week, I've been having a resonating/vibrating sound in my head and ears whenever I make certain sounds when I talk. I would like to know if that has ever happened to someone else and if so, what you think that might be. It is not a very comfortable feeling and it's also been accompanied by more pain and swelling in my neck.

I hope someone will be able to help me with that problem.

Thanks for reading!

    Multiple people actually - they are your surgeon, your primary care doctor - your neurologist - an orthopeadic surgeon - and ENT specialist. Any of the afore mentioned should be able to help.

    No one - Repeat NO ONE on the board is qualified to give you medical advise or treatment(s) .....

    Please discuss with your doctor(s)ASAP if it is worrying you.

    Best wishes,

    Sorry if I offended you by asking Metalneck, but I was only asking if somebody had ever experienced was I am experiencing now to have an idea of what I'm dealing with.

    I know exactly who will be able to advise me and treat my problem (if there really is one). It's just that I thought this forum was about helping out each other. I only wanted to know if someone had ever had similar problems and if so, what it was. Do I need to worry about this and is it worth taking time to see a specialist to have it checked out.

    I'm not the only one asking questions on here.

  • Actually, do a search on here. I ran across many more posts just like yours where people thought they were crazy because they either heard or felt a vibrating sound/feeling. Some had it In their lumbar region and said it felt as if they had a cellphone in their pocket on vibrate. So you are NOT alone. BTW from what I read, the doctors who those posters told had no clue what it was. It was apparently a common theme among posters and some started to believe it might be pedical screws. But do a search for "vibrating" and you should come up with the same posts.
