Thanks for your query.
Some more information was required to pinpoint the cause of whooshing sounds.
However, from the information provided, the possibilities are :-
* A defect of aortic valve
(the valve between the heart and the main blood vessel called Aorta
. With every heart-beat, the blood gushes into the aorta and blood vessels supplying blood to the brain. this gushing of blood, produces a whooshing sound which is heard in the head. This defect may be congenital, as the problem has been existing since her early childhood.
This can be easily diagnosed on 2-D Echo of the heart.
* Congenital Abnormality/kinking of the blood vessels in the brain. A carotid angiogram will demonstrate this abnormality.
Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he agree with me and order for advised tests.
