cracking neck and warm feeling

I crack my neck everyday, because it feels good, and if I don't, my neck will be stiff. Sometimes, rarely, maybe once every two months, I crack it, and I get this horrible pain, and a warm feeling "crawling" from mid-neck about 6 inchs up into my brain. I'm not sure about it, but this has happened about 10 times to me, and at first I was worried that it was a blood vessel popped and I got blood going into my brain, but I didn't die from it.. so does anyone know what this is? what that warm sensation is? and is it something I should be worried about/consult my doctor about?

Re: cracking neck and warm feeling

Obviously, I can't diagnose. But is it possible that the vertebrae in your neck are misaligned and that the cracking you're doing is irritating a nerve? I would consult with a chiropractor if I were you. Your "regular" doctor will probably just tell you to stop cracking your neck, which you probably won't do. A chiropractor can help you learn how to continue cracking your neck without putting yourself in harm's way.

Good luck!

Thanks MWR. I will do that after the holiday weekend. And you're right, I wouldn't stop. If I did, my neck would be stiff and sore all day.
