Clicking neck

IS that normal?  I turn my head or yawn and my neck clicks or pops, it's annoying!  One of many annoying things going on but this just makes my skin crawl!

Hi Jenny,

It is not normal, but many chiarians do have this issue. Many of us have DDD, cervical stinosis and bulging disks.....some even have  calcifications on the bones or nodules....not sure what they r called.

Hope this helps

Eye trouble can be no picnic!  All I have is occasional blurriness!  I giggled when hubby asked me today "WHAT was that?"...oh just my neck!

Hello,
I get this all the time. Sometimes when it happens it will either trigger a headache or pressure in my head and even dizziness.....Not all the time but it does happen. Another thing I get too is (this may sound weird but its hard to explain) but it feels like my brain jumps inside my head or twitches its weird....

i have the same issue with my neck it happens all the time no matter what i do, it is rather annoying and sometimes i wish people could hear what i hear, feel what i feel maybe then they would understand and not think I am crazy!...LOL...
I also get the dizzyness from it too. I do have cervical stenosis.

Yes I get that, a headache at times, but usually if it's cause I turned my head to fast.  I have no idea on my Chiari details just yet.  They were fague with me last week, said I had it and they needed a CINE MRI.  She said after that I needed to meet with a surgeon as she, the neurologist, could do nothing about it.

Reading your guys posts has been so helpful, learning that I am not crazy, LOL!  I tried to explain my symptoms for so long and they kept telling me it was from having the brain surgery 3 years ago for something else.  

Thanks for sharing your input!  It's great!
