Re: Headache,cracking sound in head and neck

Yes, I have that too - I ask one Doctor if he could hear it cause it is appears to be loud enough to me for others to hear and he said no, it is really not that loud - he explained that is has to do with the veins and muscles that are involved with the migraine symptoms that move when we move our heads - I might also ask, on occasion do you get a pain in your neck when you open your mouth to eat if you move your head a certain way? He said this is all connected with the type of migraine that we get - like the neck bone is connected to the head bone etc etc etc.

Re: Headache,cracking sound in head and neck

I kinda have this too. From the back of my head to my r. head and ear and face. I have been getting treated for tmj, but now I'm wondering if its from my neck? It is constant and ruining my life.

Re: Headache,cracking sound in head and neck

tmj is when your jaw joints are not in the right position. A dentist should be able to diagnose you. I have been having facial muscle spasms , temporal headaches, neck pain and trouble eating and talking but now they think some of it might be from my neck.
If your bite if off they'll fix that. Sometimes missing teeth cause tmj. Just depends- everyone is different and some people wear a splint.
