headache/chronic sinusitis and crackling sounds
My daughter (17) has been ill since Oct. with headache & neck pain that is unrelieved by any medications. It is every day, ranging from a 6-10 pain scale   A CT head w/o contrast and CT sinus was done-Normal w/ minor sinusitis and congentially absent sphenoid. Today another radiologist said the other sinus's are smaller than normal too.  Her other complaints are: hearing loss rt, vision loss rt,  pain in rt ear & between mastoid bone and ear, nosebleeds, low temp. She has been on rocephin thru IV while at hospital in Dec, then omnicef after discharge. Jan 2 was told had strep as throat hurt, had bumps on rt side of throat and excessive spitting so she was put on another antibiodic.  Now: She still is not feeling well and is tired. Her asthma is worse, she hasnt slept in 6 days so we are weaning her off the amitriptelline (she had severe chest pain w/facial numbness)and we think the topamax may be causing the rt side abdominal pain so they are reducing that too. Now, the question-- for the last week her neck (soft tissue area on rt side) has been making loud crackling sounds when you touch the area.  The neurologist called it crepitus over the phone and said to have our GP look at it.  The next day it spread to her chest/collarbone area.  And now it can be heard on the face, by the right eye, around the nose, on the chin, behind the ear, by the spinal cord in back of neck --pretty much anywhere you press.  today the cheek looks swollen. Only the neurologist is concerned about the noise. The GP is not concerned. Is the sound from the sinus drainage?
