Thread: Popping in back/neck

    Popping in back/neck

    For about the past month, I've had a popping/cracking in my back or neck. I think it's my neck, but I can't quite tell. It doesn't hurt, but it's annoying and worrisome. It happens frequently. Like pretty much anytime I move.

    My rods go from the top of my spine to the bottom and I've had them for about 25 years.

    I will be seeing my doctor about this, but I first wanted to ask for advice here.

    This is most likely an aging issue and would not be a common symptom of problems with rods left in place this long. Do mention to your physician when you see them next, but it is unlikely that it requires any treatment.

    Really? At age 38? And I'll just have to live with it forever? Yikes.

    I've had this for over a decade. I'm 47 now. My physiatrist back then said it's normal. He said he had the same problem even though AB. It happens most often to me when I turn and twist, usually in bed.

    Well it sounds like it's nothing serious, so that's very good news. It's disappointing to hear that I'll just have to live with it though.

    Thanks to all!
