New event :Major rubberband like snap in neck

Just walking and POP felt this HUGE rubberband snap in my front left of my neck (caroitid?) I know I saw stars! And then it went away. What in the world is this? It really got my attention, as it was a snap.

In recent months has happened 3x.

Re: New event :Major rubberband like snap in neck

julyg, have no clue but I have the same thing happening back in the scapula/shoulder area. I had it happen in the neck before usually I would end up with a headachce. The doc said (about the neck) that can happen when there is a lot of infammation going on. Not sure if that is your case but I know the area I currently have it in is pretty darn painful, especially after it occurs. good luck. Did you get it checked out?

Not yet and since it went away without reoccurance I am not actively seeking treatment Just wondered if this had happened to anyone else. It was so startling.
