What Hiccups, Ringing Ears, Popping Joints And A Whistling Nose Mean For Your Health

Hiccups usually appear after eating. Ringing ears appear after a night in a loud bar. Popping joints can be noticed after some exercises. Whistling nose can occur when you’re having a cold.

But, still these symptoms should be monitored as they may indicate something else. Body sounds are usually an indication of a less or more serious medical condition or some need.

Here, we’ll present you several reasons and indicators that will show you how important it is to pay attention to what your body says.

1.Ringing in your ears

Ringing in our ears usually appears hen we are in a loud place for a longer period of time, for example, a disco, but sometimes, it might happen while you are at home. You will hear a faint ringing in your ears. Tinnitus, an ear condition is one of the causes that can provoke this ringing. This ear condition may be caused by infection or as a result of aging.

Our ears normally send sound waves to the brain which receives the sound waves immediately and interprets them. When you have tinnitus, your ear constantly sends faint sound waves to the brain as a result of the damage.

If you experience pain or vertigo, consult your doctor because it may indicate a form of neurological disease.

2.Your joints keep popping

Your joints may start popping if you move or stand abruptly. The joints are lubricated by a fluid that helps to avoid our bones grinding themselves. You may have ruptured a ligament if you have pain, stiffness or limited mobility after a popping of your joints.

An early stage of osteoarthritis can appear when the popping turns into grinding.

3.A whistling nose

This means that your nasal cavity may be blocked with mucus. It could also mean that you have a tear in your cartilage that requires surgery if you have had some kind of a nose trauma. Visit your doctor if you suspect something.

4.You have hiccups

Hiccups are usually caused by an interruption in our breathing. Our diaphragm will start to spasm and then hiccups appear. When we are excited, we can stimulate the phrenic and vagus, which regulate our diaphragm. That happens by our stomach after a meal or if we are on some medication.When you hold your breath for some time, your lungs get filled with more carbon dioxide which relaxes your diaphragm and stops the hiccups. Hiccups could even last for a period of 48 hours if you have an irritation of your nerves. In this case, you should see your doctor.

If hiccups occur with a shortness of breath or pain, they could also be a symptom of stroke. You should never ignore this, but visit your doctor immediately.
