(I have posted this in another section on this board, but this falls in either sections, so I've put it in both.)

Ok, a few month ago, my back started cracking when my body twists slightly. And when I stand up for a period of time, it starts to ache.

Also, my neck has a problem. It also cracks/clicks slightly around the back.

Is this a serious problem? I'm only 15 Years old, so I hope it isnt. Please reply with any possible problems/treatment or anything I could do to help stop it. Thanks.

  • I've had the same problem for a while now. I'd go to the doctors to check it out, they'll probably send you for an x-ray to make sure there are no problems, I've been wondering if my herniated discs are the cause of my problem. If you feel down your spine and either feel a dip where there shouldn't be one or a swelling go to the doctor and voice your concerns. Infact I'm heading to the docs today so hopefully I can get it sorted. I've got a looooooooong list of complaints for him so it'll keep him busy lol. I'm like a walking encyclopedia of medical problems for a doctor lol.
