Over the last four weeks I have developed a clicking and popping in my neck. I do not recall any injury, and even went back through my logs to see when I may have strained it. Nothing.
It’s definitely tight on the left side and the bones in my neck feel like they are “loose” and pop when I move my head. My theory is that I’ve pulled a trap or deeper upper back muscle resulting in my upper spine and neck being pulled of of alignement.
I had a deep sports massage last night and it really helped for awhile, but it tightened back up by this morning. I have an appointment to see a sports med doctor on Monday and will get x-rays. I have significantly ramped down my training until I get the word on whether or not I’ve got a serious spinal issue.
In the meantime, I wanted to ask you folks if anyone has had a similar problem and how long it hung on for.
