Thanks for your advice, the only way i can explain it is that mum hears the crackling and every movement in her head, i find this hard to explain, i guess its like when you have an ear infection and everything sounds "loud" in your head, im convinced she has damaged some nerves as i ve looked up nerve damage and a nerve runs into and around the ear i believe, and i ve read that if this is damaged in any way it can cause this, why oh why can t the doctors explain to her what it is??
Thanks for writing in.
Neck cracking occurs due to build up of tension in the neck muscles. It is important that your mother maintains a good posture while lying down, watching TV or sitting.
Neck massage and ice packs will also help. Also she can get a neck X ray done to rule out disc prolapse or cervical spondylitis.
