hello, i am a 24 year old male and lately i have been having a strange tiny bubbles popping feel back of my neck once in a while.It more often happens when i am sleeping or working on the computer.i was wondering if thats common or is it something that needs attention.
hiya wow weird,,,iam 25 female and have recently sufferd alot of lightheadedness and neck pain,weird thing is that when i rub the back of my neck it feeks like everything is popping and grinding! i also get pains in my left arm.i swear ive got a brain tumor or anurysm lol
I had that weird popping feeling in my neck as well. Sometimes in the movements and esp when Id touch my spine where Id have pain. My neuro told me that was bone spurs. Im not sure in your case, but Id certainly have it checked out. I just had neck surgery 2 days ago. I had 2 herniated discs and they had produced multiple bone spurs over time. I could actually feel the largest one near C5-6. I would fell like grinding sensation as I would rub my neck. If I turned my head side to side, very painful, but it would make poppy noises.
Just reading over the comments and I'm not sure when your describing the popping that your talking about vertebre or neck structure. I hear you saying bubbles and popping. Meaning like air bubbles?
Like fluid in your neck with bubbles? This would be quite different than what others are saying. Clarify if you can.
mines more a crunching noise/feeling when i rub the back of my neck n e one n e idea what this could be?
ive had lightheadedness for the past 6 months too iam thinking along the lines of anxiety ,but then in the back of my mind iam thinking worse things,but i guess thats normal...n e 1 had similar things?
asteriks: you are the first person I've known that understands! I've been searching everywhere for some sort of understanding for the bubbles... most doctors just think I'm crazy. Unfortunately, being crazy doesn't explain much.
leavesforhealing: If asteriks has the same thing I do... it's more of an effervescent bubbling. Mine feels like small bubbles, going up the left side of my cervical spine, just about 1 inch from the base of my skull. I can feel them traveling just a little way... but I can not only hear them, but feel them as well.
You could just have muscle strain, especially if you are spending alot of time on the computer. Watch your posture, keep the chin in not out like most people do when using a computer. You are putting too much strain on the trapezius muscle if leaning forward, pulling on the neck muscle. Go to get a good massage.
wow so many replied :) thanks all . i check the thread couple of time but didnt see reply and the feel also stopped but it does come back once in while .. i think its probably stress & wrong posture while sitting on computer and sleeping as well.If it happens again i will probably check with the doctor.
you must be one of us who also hear the fizzing sound at the back of our neck just below our skull... there's the thread that you might be interested to read through, although most of their doctors really didn't say anything:
I have a pain in my neck that feels like it is a bubble popping i compare the pain to a feeling of a bubble full of acid popping - it stings it is sudden and it comes and goes very quickly in waves. but it does feel like a small bubble popping ...for awhile i thought it was a pinch nerve in my neck does anyone know what this could be
You all aint got **** to worry about. I have lower back ache. Pain in lefr some times rightt side of neck under skull. Bubble like feeling in. N all ova head. Shooting pains. From back that travel in to. Neck and head. 7 months and no look am still here just pump ur self up on tabs keep ur back straight dont arch. Ur back keep neck and straight as u can.

U or most u cud be getting reffered pain from else whr in ur body as i think my lower back causes upper bk neck and head probs
I was just reading all of these interesting neck posts. I'm with you. I have had cracking and popping in my neck for a while now. I believe it is a combination of the wrong pillow and too much computer work. I have found a way to massage and relax the neck muscles and it seems to work well and give me a few hours relief. I will be buying a new pillow tonight to see if it helps. No neurological issues or diseases, just muscle strain. People get to worried about these thing, which I'm sure, leads to more stress and neck cracks.
I don't know about the exact reason for the issues that most of you have been suffering but I would say that you should visit a physiotherapy center, they would help you relieve the problem and also the pain and spasm.
