My neck cracks, pops, shifts, thuds… you name it! Even when I shift my hip it will crack. I had xrays on my lower back and it appears that I had fallen on my tail bone a few times and actually broke it. It jarred my spine and my neck… who knew! Still have issues. I use all different kinds of pillows and neck rests. No cure unless I want surgery but the risk of being paralyzed is too great and even then that’s not a “cure.” Doctors just really don’t know what to do and I think I’m more of a pain the neck to them than my own affliction! Don’t take no for an answer; don’t let them make you feel worse! Keep seeing someone til you get help! Gentle hugs to all of you sharing in this discomfort.

> Disc Herniation – A common injury to the cushion-like discs that separate your vertebrae is known as disc herniation . This occurs when the soft inner filling of the disc protrudes through the tougher outer encasing. This rupture by itself is often not painful, however the protruding material then often comes in contact with surrounding nerves, which very much does cause pain. Herniated discs can go by many other names , some slang and some used by medical professional, but they all generally refer to a very similar injury.
