    Re: Neck Cracking

    The first step is to see a doctor and get some diagnostic tests to see what is going on in your neck. They will usually do an x-ray first, and maybe order an MRI. Have you seen a doctor about this before?

    Re: Neck Cracking

    I did not see a doctor but im hoping soon, i had a strange dizzy spell today and it was really scary and i had to leave my neck in one spot...it almost felt like an anxiety attack but idk... i dont have trouble thinking or blurred vision, my neck doesnt hurt now about 4 hours after it happened when I move it...there is just a pain deep within the upper part of my neck, im thinking i pulled somthing..but its annoying and it didnt bother me too much today during track practice

    Re: Neck Cracking

    In any case, you shouldn't let this go on too much longer. The neck is not something to mess around with. Do you have a doctor that will listen to you? Make sure you tell him/her about all of your symptoms so they can best treat you or determine if you need a referral to a specialist. I hope you find some relief.

    Re: Neck Cracking

    You definitely should see a Doctor, especially with the other symptoms that you're experiencing. As long as you've stopped cracking your neck, I imagine your condition is completely treatable/manageable. I do realize it's difficult to break a habit like that - my daughter cracks her neck and I'm always bugging her to stop. (Especially, with the neck issues I've faced).

    Since you're experience symptoms as a result, I would definitely seek medical advice and maybe have some test run.

    Good luck with that.
