No: You also asked about these symptoms being caused by brain tumors, right? Why are you focused on catastrophic diseases that aren't related with these symptoms. Careful what you read or listen to from either the internet or friends. Cracking occurs in every joint of the body and is of no consequence 99% of the time. Same with muscle twitching...insignificant clinically in over 95% of cases. ...Read more

Could moderate to severe stenosis in cervical and thoracic spine cause pain, weakness in the upper arm, dizziness and tinnitus when stretChing my neck?

Some advice: Although your symptoms could be prompted by cervical stenosis or even nerve pinching at the foraminal outlet, the dizziness, and tinnitus, makes me wonder about co-morbidities, and would think of inner ear issues, but also vascular problems, such as subclavian steal syndrome.

Can chiropractic take away upper back shoulder and neck pain from 4 bulg cervical disc c3-c7 and cervical kyphosis also? Is this even causing my pain?

Chiro treatments can be very effective, but just be weary of the hard sell. I would not recommend more than 6 treatments if you are not seeing any benefits. Bulging discs do not necessarily cause pain. You are young and should get better! see pcp. ...Read more
