I have a tapping and a zinging noise coming from my head.

Customer Question
My name is***** have...

My name is***** have a tapping and a zinging noise coming from my head. I'm fine if I'm laying down or just sitting. When I get up to move I have this noise and I also get some equilibrium problems. Any idea what it could be?

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I had the issue real bad after having a test for gastroparesis. It was determined that I had a reaction to the contrast dye. The problem went away after a few days. I had cataract surgery a week ago and they gave me an intravenous drug to take the edge off. The next day I started having these problems again. It's affecting my ability to concentrate and it's really annoying. I'm not sure what to do about it. I took Benadryl to see if that would help with the issue and it didn't. It's not my blood pressure. I just have no idea what could be causing this problem.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

These symptoms suggest benign positional vertigo.

Inner ear canaliths are not in alignment on positional change causing the symptoms.

The noise is also called tinnitus --often benign from inner ear causes.

The recent contrast dye intolerance likely precipitated it.

Viral infection is also likely possibility.

Should subside on its own over time.

You can use tinnitus masking device as well.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
