TMD dx. Ear pain, sore muscle down front of neck, popping jaw. Can this cause lower jaw pain next to molars under tongue? Cold fluid causes ear pain?
Pain and dysfunction: If the tmj/tmd issues last for awhile, some symptoms can affect the ear (s) in many ways. You may develop ringing in the ears; earaches, popping-grating-clicking that is heard constantly in the ears; roaring muffled sounds; hearing loss; on and on. It is better to see an ENT first if you have ear symptoms to rule out it being the ears as the source of the problem. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My neck started popping/crackling when I turn my head left or right. It does not hurt. Any concerns or suggestions? Thanks
Not really: Many people have non-symptomatic neck popping and cracking (including myself!). You are probably sensing the normal motion of the cervical facet joints. I do not recommend purposeful cracking of one's neck, which usually requires a significant rotational movement of the neck (i have had patients with acute cervical herniations after those maneuvers). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Stiffness: Although it may be caused by a number of things, the most likely cause of the neck kinking and popping is stiffness due to relative inactivity of the neck. Performing gentle stretching exercises of your neck every day should fix it. Although it is possible that the popping and kinking may seem to be worse initially, it should eventually resolve. ...Read more
Sometimes when I swallow the right side of my neck makes this popping/spasm usually when I lay on that side, I have smoked for 4 yrs, .25 pack year?
See md: Complaints are unusual-see your MD. As far as smoking-the decimal place makes all the difference. Pack years are the number of packs(20 cig) per day times number of years smoked. The .25 pk yr would be equivalent to just over 1 cigarette a day, vs 1/4 pack(5 cigs) per day giving a 1 pk yr, or worse case a 25 pk year history implying 6 packs per day(which I have seen).Stop smoking to avoid illness ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I just finished at a swim meet and now it feels sore when i do any sort of movement or any other use of my neck like swallowing.My neck makes weird popping noises as I do these things and if I push down on my skin it feels "bubbly." Is this normal?
No. Can see doctor.: Bubbly skin sensations sound like there is air inside the skin. That means a person can go to the doctor now to see if there is a partially collapsed lung that is leaking some air into the skin. One can go to the ER, because they can do a chest x-ray quickly there. If one's regular doctor is available right now, one can first ask the doctor for advice, because the doctor might want to see her. ...Read more
