Titanium Plat On Left Side Of Head

About four years ago I got into a car accident, hit my head on the review mirror, and ended up pitting a titanium plate on the left side were I cracked in my skull.

My question is that when I place my hand on the plate area, and move my hand I'm a slow circular motion, I hear and feel Snap crackle and popping noise's. Is this normal?

IF the noise is new, and it was my titanium plate, I'd have my doctor take a look at it and handle the treatment, if any. It could be nothing at all, but I look at it this way: the brain is covered by the plate and you want to do all you  can to protect the brain.

Thank you for the advise. The feeling/noise has been there since the surgery.... I'm pretty sure. But just to ease my mind I'm gonna make an appointment with a Nero.

Of all the places I had to get a plate in my head to protect my brain. I would have rather had a plate in my leg. Umfortunetly this is not the case and brain protection is extremely important!
