Hi I know this is an old topic but I thought I would post a comment anyway. I'm 50. I have had a clicking type noise in my head for as long as I can remember from childhood on. But one difference. I can MAKE the click and control the click. My son has sat next to me and heard it! I have had him sit still close to the side of my head and when I make it happen he can hear it. It is quite loud a scratchy click.I can make it click when ever I want while walking, laying down jumping and running or just sitting.It involves the jaw and some muscles what its moving I don't know. I have experimented by lightly holding my hands to my head under my ears. Its mostly the upper jaw that makes things "MOVE" The apple of my cheeks to my temples has movement...it's very light movement-like feeling for a pulse on your wrist if your patient you can feel it. It's NOT painful,I have no headaches and no discomfort its irritating tat I can and I have found at times when I am a little nervous I will make it move on purpose kind of like a "TIC"... I never worry about it.View Thread
