Sub-Q Emphesema: Subcutaneous emphesema is a condition where air makes its way under the skin. It may be noticed as air blebs or crackles under the skin. This may happen from a pneumothorax (burst lung tissue) which potentially may happen from a big valsalva (bearing down) like with a big bm. Go get it checked out asap.

Can forward head posture be the cause of the following symptoms? Headache, mucus in back of throat (gerd/lard), fatigue, dizziness, neck/back pain...

Structure & function: Headache, mucus in back of throat (?Pnd vs, (ler), fatigue, dizziness, neck/back pain are all non-specific, often due to an identifiable condition or a named disease process. Without knowing what specific condition(s) is(are) causing these symptoms, it would be incorrect to attribute one vague physical sign (ie forward head posture) to a set of vague symptoms.

Heart Disease?: With the limited information, the foremost concern would be a heart condition such as angina. I would recommend that you get evaluated as soon as possible. It is possible you have cervical spine or a muscular cause for your symptoms, but these conditions are not life-threatening. Please get a cardiology evaluation first and make sure you don't have symptoms related to heart disease.

See cardiologist: The symptoms you're describing may be signs of an abnormal heart rhythm, like supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). You should see a heart rhythm specialist (cardiac electrophysiologist) for evaluation and possible testing and treatment. Call 911 if short of breath, chest pain, dizziness, or passing out is associated.

Many Possibilities: Depending on how long it's been going on, i would consider an evaluation by a spine specialist. Sometimes it could be a muscle imbalance, early onset arthritis or scoliosis. Also could be a pinched nerve/herniated disc. Either way it might be good to figure it out and get appropriate treatment.

Pulled muscle: The first thing to consider is a pulled muscle. You put some ice on the area that hurts when you have an acute injury and do repeated ice for the next couple of days but after 36 hours and you can use heat. If your symptoms don't improve you need to discuss this with your physician
