How very strange. I have the exact same noise in the back of my head and also swollen lymph nodes which have been biopsied. I have also have a goiter and nodes on my thyroid which has been biopsied. I have been told that swollen nodes can be from stress and that I may have fibromyalgia but my muscle and bone pain is different. After a goiter follow up with an endro, she suggested my cortisol levels be tested for Cushings. I just turned in my 24 hour urine test yesterday but am feeling anxious. Still have not had much of an explanation about the swollen nodes and squirting noise. I also have ear and jaw pain.

Unusual symptoms can be alarming. I will try to give you information that may help. Swollen lymph nodes usually occur as a result of exposure to bacteria or a virus. Swollen lymph nodes are most commonly noticed in the neck, under the chin, in the armpits and in the groin. There are several symptoms associated with Cushing's disease but swollen lymph nodes are not one of them.
The noise that you describe sounds like a symptom of a possible vestibular disorder The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that help control balance and eye movements,
This is only a guess, so I suggest that you talk to your doctor about both of your symptoms. Your healthcare provider is your best resource for getting a diagnosis and any necessary treatment.
