24 year old male (healthy)
For about 6 months I have been experiencing neck pain. I am constantly cracking and popping my neck. I can’t move it without hearing some sort of crack or pop. My neck and back are constantly making a popping / crunchy sound. I have had a swollen lymph node on the back of my neck (where my trap meets my neck) for about 4 months. I would say that most of my pain / discomfort radiates from this spot. I thought that this might have been a knot that was applying pressure to my neck muscles, which was causing the pain. I have had chiropractors say I have Forward Head Posture.
Yesterday I got a massage after a chiropractic appointment and the therapist applied quite a bit of pressure to the knot / lymph node. Up until yesterday, I had no idea this was lymph node and thought it was a knot. So today, I have another lymph node swollen under my jaw line that is tender to the touch.
Has anyone experienced problems similar to this? Sometimes people look at me like I have turrets because I am constantly tweaking my neck.
Any help would be great; I am making an appointment with an ETN tomorrow.
I have had MRI’s, X-rays.
My energy levels are fine.
I do get stressed from the pain and feel like my short-term memory can be blurred at times. I guess my overall memory can be affected…
