What Is This Crackling In My Neck
Joint Movement: The bones of the neck move to allow us to move our head around. Thus is made possible by articular surfaces. As we age these surfaces can wear down, or be altered by arthritic changes. Unless you are being bothered by neck pain, numbness, tingling or weakness, the sounds can be left alone. If symptoms get worse you can see a spine doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dislocated jaw: The cartilage in your joint is out of place (usually because the ball of the joint is too far back). If it cracks when you open or close, this is the probably cause. If it cracks and then you move your jaw forward and it no longer cracks it may be possible to treat this with a splint (diagnosis) and then maintain this position during orthodontic or orthopedic corrections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tinnitus: Most of these problems are due to degeneration of the auditory apparatus, especially associated with aging, but can happen after head trauma, and associated with hypertension, anemias, and thyroid problems. Rarely, transmitted sounds occur with congenital vascular malformations, and obstruction of large neck blood vessels. ...Read more
Sometimes normal: During a swallow, the voice box is elevated by muscles in the neck in order to protect from aspiration and allow passage of the food or liquid bolus into the esophagus. Sometimes during these movements the ligaments or attachments or cartilages themselves can make clicking or popping sounds. Without symptoms of pain, there is nothing to worry about. ...Read more
TMD possible: If you have clicking in the jaw, it could be a sign of tmd, temporomandibular disorder. There are other symtoms such as headaches, painful chewing, limited opening, and a "sore face". Many times there is not one sole cause, but many factors that contribute to it. Those include trauma, arthritis, bad occlusion or bite, and grinding or clenching. The best way to diagnose is to see your dentist. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Occipital protuberan: If it feels like part of your skull and like a bone it's probably the occipital protuberance and you just noticed it. If it's softer, sort of rounded and seems to be connected to your scalp it's probably a cyst, called a "wen" in the old days. Show your doctor--we like to see lumps anywhere but breasts or testicles since they are seldom serious. ...Read more
Otalgia: Otalgia is fancy term for ear pain but it doesn't explain cause. Ear is comprised of 3 distinct parts. Inner ear doesn't typically hurt but can lead to dizziness when irritated. Middle & out ear can hurt due to infection, whereby latter is distinguished by pain upon pulling/touching outer ear. Eustachian tube dysfunction can also hurt, too. Check w/your Family Doc to determine what's causing pain. ...Read more
A few things: Could be due to migraines or food sensitivities. Could be secondary to stress or medication rebound. While you are young, it is still worth getting evaluated as severe temple pain can be associated with some serious complications, such as vision problems that you would want to avoid. ...Read more
