    Question weird feeling in neck

    I have a question. I don't have any outward signs of a goiter or feel in lumps from the outside, but sometimes when I turn my head to the side and then return it to frontward position I can feel this "pop" in my neck up front. I say "pop" cuz it is hard to describe but it is like the feeling when you pop your knuckle, like two surfaces sliding past one another.
    If you read my previous post you know I am waiting to see an endo for additional testing as my primary care doctor doesnt think my blood levels show thyroid problems. I am still not quite sure whether all my symptoms are hypo or hyper as I have both at times, and have a family history of both w/ my grandmas being hypo and my sister with Graves.
    Does it sound like lumps on my thyroid or just something normal for anyone? Can you have lumps on it without being able to feel them on the outside? I also have puffy upper eyelids that hang over my eyes, though I don't have bulging eyes.

    The popping noise sounds like you could be missing some cartilage in that vicinity. I have that in my left jaw area. I read exercising it helps, and it did for me.

    I believe you should stress this noise to your doctor and request an xray. Popping is not normal and I personally know of no reason to associate it with your thyroid.

    Good luck and keep us posted
