Ok, I was wondering if you ladies could help me...I have a hump on my neck...Is this due to me being overweight? It probably does, but I was just wondering, because I do have a habit of cracking my nuckles, and I do my neck too..So I wasn't 100% sure if it was from me cracking my nuckles/neck or me being overweight..Thanks in advance!
Funny, I just asked my daughter about a sort of hump on her neck and she said this was because of her posture at work always bending over and the Doc told her she needs to have a chiropractor look at it.
She is overweight and I thought it could be possible but??????? Thats all I can relate to you.
I have the hump on the back of my neck as well. I am overweight (size 14)as well, but I have large breasts(42DD). I am waiting for approval for a breat reduction, because my back hurts at night. And I am too young for that, 28. The surgeon said the hump could be from my breasts pulling me down, and I am trying to keep my head straight. After the surgery, the hump should go down. But he said it could be posture related as well. Hope I could help a little, your not alone.
I've seen people develop that hump because they always have their shoulders forward. Being overweight, if you are self conscious about it and tend to hunch forward or if you have large breasts which pull your breasts forward, that can contribute to it. Also, I think there is a fat pad there, so the more overweight you are, the more fat build up. My brother, who is not overweight but has always been self-conscious and has social anxiety, has the hump from bad posture.
Thanks too all of you who have answered! I think it's b/c of bad posture/being overweight too..I tend to slouch, and I'm overweight by atleast 70 pounds..so maybe if I change my posture, and lose some weight..well Thanks again!!!
