My neck is so noisy. I was just driving on the motorway this morning and everytime I looked over my shoulder my neck kinda went crack creak crack
Then looking the other way creak crack.
Is it ageing?! Do you have a neck like this too??!

My neck is a "pain in the neck". I've suffered with stiffness in it from 16 and been continuously to the Dr's trying to get a referral with no luck. It went just before Christmas and resulted in a frozen shoulder so back to the Dr's who just gave me strong pain killers. That lasted 12 weeks and 4 weeks ago it went again luckily no frozen shoulder this time just pain around neck and down shoulder/arm. Went to the Dr's last week who sent me for an x-ray and has referred me for physio. X-ray showed a degenerative spine. No idea what this is and if its something I will have to live with forever. As you can tell I'm feeling most sorry for myself as it gets me down because everytime I pick A up or feed him its so uncomfortable and sore I could cry.

Cracking is generally just little pockets of air between the joint escaping, or ligaments pinging.
My thoracic spine (area under bra strap area) gets very tight and I often get H to bear hug me to release it!
Mrs Poon- If your spine is degenerative it basically means the bones are becoming a bit rough at the joints and so start to rub. It is life long but I would really recommend seeing a chiropractor or osteopath. Physio is great at rebuilding damaged muscle but you might have a misalignment that is causing the tension and frozen shoulder. Ideally take your xray with you or at least an acurate description of exactly which vertebra are effected. Best money you'll ever spend!

Mine did until I had acupuncture for muscle tensions and now it doesn't.

thats good to know its just air or muscles pinging working hard, I thought it was my bones cracking and I was damaging myself!

I have a very clicky elbow, I have to click it a few times a day. I barely notice it anymore but when someone new sees me doing it they're horrified! My thumbs also click and one or two of my fingers yuk.

Thanks WH. I picked up the report from the Dr's today and am waiting for a call from the physio to get an appointment arranged. Sorry for crashing your thread too ML x
