Noises from the brain
Sometimes I hear crackling and popping sounds from my brain, is this something serious?
To have these symptoms properly diagnosed, you will need to see a health professional. You may require a physical examination. In general, "cracking and popping" sounds do not come from the brain, but from other tissues such as joints.
