why do i hear a clicking noise when i walk after wisdom teeth extraction?
i had 4 wisdom teeth removed a few weeks ago. I didn't leave the house the first few days. I sat around, ate vicodin and kept my mouth clean. When i did go for a walk i noticed a clicking noise. that seemed to be heard in time with my step and hopping down stairs. i thought maybe it was the hood on coat or just my backpack. after a few days it was obvious that was coming from my body and has not gone away. I also thought it could be the sound of fluid, I did notice some blood pressure elevation i assume from returning to working on my feet and less vicodin. the only other possibility (i am just taking stabs) i have had a neck problem for a couple years and i wonder if i hurt my neck while i was sedated and they pulled my teeth. I am looking for similarities between my story and the background of those who describe the same clicking on soft impact noise. any help and thoughts appreciated.

See teh dentist who did the extractions perhaps he can have a look

It can be one of the following :

1. it is possible that your neck might have gotten hurt, but I doubt it.

2. You might have sustained injury to your TMJ from the overstretching of the jaw during the extraction.

3. It is an abnormal / irregular response of one of your nerves and tissue. Because the area is swollen and / or manipulated, the branch of the facial nerve (Nerve to Stapedius) might have gotten slightly irritated. As a result you are hearing the sound in a distorted from.

This might have happened just because of the internal swelling of the tissue as well.

So, you should at least talk to your dentist and see what he has to say.

Give it at least 6 weeks to heal.

I would also make an appointment with the doctor to get the neck checked.
