For the last 3-4 months my neck/lower skull has been clicking every time i look left (doesn't happen when i look right). I'm not entirely sure when it first happened, I think after doing yoga, I did a forearm stand and felt my head almost change pressure (but no pain) and since then the click has been here.
It is always there and I can make the sound anytime.
It is not a grinding sound like bone or the vertebrae. It feels a little like it could be a ligament getting caught / air popping. Almost like a grinding pop. There is no pain, but the noise is annoying and I can kind of feel the pop.
I've been to the doctors, massage, physio, Osteopath, Acupuncture and chiropractor. I'm 30, no pain, but super worrying hearing a loud crack every time i look left. The sound seems to move and hasn't gotten any worse or better in 3 months.
When i lie down it sometimes disappears and if someone lifts my head (stretches neck).
THe noise also seems to change and move where its coming from, but mainly feels deep within my skull / neck. According to my own research it could be to do with Atla / axis.
