Crackling/crunching sound in neck
« on: April 17, 2014, 02:02:14 PM »
Does anyone else have this?  I've had this for years and really seem to notice and pay attention to it when I'm some place quiet.  When I turn my head left or right, I can hear this crackling sound in my neck.  I hear it more or louder when I turn my head to the left.  I've also experienced a fizzing sound on occasion but the crackling is all the time.  The sounds come from the back of my neck.

Just wondering if anyone else has this and what it could be.

I have this my doctor said the tendons in my nec were mmaking this sound and prescribed me a strong anti inflammatory  it helped a little bit but i have it alot because i have degenerative disc disease in most of my spine. But it's nothing to worry about just some tendons and stuff clicking and making sounds in there.

I forgot to add.. i ddon't notice it unless it's very quiet either I mostly notice it when I  first wake up Iin the morning when I turn my head back and forth it crackles and  pops kinda reminds me of rice krispies lol but it also sounds like something is rubbing . I have neck pain to but it's from the disc disease.

I don't have any pain just the crunching sound.  Your description of rice krispies is perfect.  That's exactly it.

Well, hopefully, it's just something that comes with aging.

I have that too!  I hate that sound!  It happens turning head left or right or looking up or looking down. (Rice Krispies IS a great description)

Not in my neck, but I have that in my knees and ankles.  Not sure why/what it is.

My legs crack all the time, too.  When I go up and down the stairs, I snap and click with every step.

My right knee crunches when I kneel - another horrible sound.

I get this all the time. I also get a fizzing sound in the back of my neck when I'm laying in bed and hungry usually in the morning. I dont know what this could be but my best guess is CSF making its way to the brain.

I get it too, yeah. Its associated with tension headaches, which I get a lot of. Its not dangerous, but it feels unnerving.

Don't worry about it, you're head is moving all over the place all day, and your neck is the pivot.. perfectly normal for stiffness, cracking and crunching.. I crack my neck so mine is really loud haha

I get this, among other head noises.  Sometimes I'll get what feels like a shock of lightning in my neck and it's so bad, I always involuntarily yell, when it happens.  It's like the vertebrae got stuck in place, or caught on the track.

X-rays showed that I have bone spurs in my neck.  I did get rear-ended in a car accident once.  It snapped my neck back pretty hard.  Who knows if it healed right, or not.

I always crack my neck..I've noticed the popping/cracking sound in my knees but I barely pay it any mind..the body is full of weird quirks. It's when you focus on something it seem irregular. Take care.
