About 2 months ago I was cracking my back and neck and I noticed a popping at the top of my spine, base of my skull. My whole life when I would rotate my neck all the way around it would pop my spine every time I rolled my neck around. Everyone I talked to said it is %100 normal for my neck to pop when I roll it around. But now at the VERY TOP of my spine and the base of my skull when I rotate my neck at all, if I go from left to right or vise versa, or if I roll my neck all the way around it make a popping sound. NOTHING like my back or neck crack. It is a faint pop and it is worrying the hell out of me. I want to go to a chiropractor but we are very tight on money because me and my wife just had our first child. Does anyone have ANY IDEA at all what it could be? Any information would be much appreciated.
Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include muscle sprain spasm, ligament tendon injuries, fractures, dislocations etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.
