Weird Symptom

Postby socialdkitty » Tue May 29, 2007 12:28 pm

Anyone have any suggestions or insight on this symptom?
I have a 'possible' small localized syrinx at C6-C7. I have had left sided head and neck pain for the past 4 months. It always feels like my neck pain is radiating to my head and causing the head pain. I kind of push around on the left side of my neck to see where the pain is coming from but I could never really find the source of the pain. I also get sharp stabbing head/back of head pains with sneezing, coughing, straining, etc.
Anyway, today I was having the head pains again and I started pushing in the middle part of my neck, like right in the center where my spine would be. When I push in, I can feel a POP! in my neck and it shoots the pain exactly where my head pains, neck and shoulder pains go when I am in pain. Nothing else showed up on my MRI besides the possible syrinx. What could be causing the POP! and pain feeling in my neck?

How weird...I just did what you described and I'm popping too!! I too have a syrinx at the C6-7 level. When I push in at where I think C6-7 should be it pops and causes pain. Now I want to know along with you what causes this. Like you, all my sx started out on my left side.

lol...I'm sitting here imagining many of us pushing in on our necks to see if we pop!! I didn't expect that I would and was very surprised when I did :shock: I'd google it but to be honest don't know how to word it. So if anyone has any insight please let us know...

much luv,

Kathy

Kathy, does your "POP!" give you shooting pains too?

Mine popped on the right side and shot pains through my head and neck. Plus my neck was really painful where I pushed on it. Weird!!

I have a 12mm herniation and a syrinx in cervical and thoracic. Haven't had the decompression done.

ok..initially I did it left handed...when I did it with my right hand it was more of an immediate pain and did go up into my head...I don't know if I'd describe it as "shooting" though but maybe my description is just different than yours...I did seem to be able to reach the "popping zone" better with my right hand...weird...very weird...

After doing that, I now have constant pain in my neck and I have pain right between the eyes. I hope it goes away soon.

Mine pops easier with my right hand too. Kathy, is your neck really sore in the spot that pops? Its almost like I can feel a lump in my neck under the skin and the lump is what is popping?

Haha, well I didnt know you guys would go experimenting on yourself. Thats when you know you have true friends, when you mention something and they start medical experiments on themselves :P
