I have this really annoying neck issue.
When i shrug on my right side, it cracks. It generally doesn't hurt when i do it, but if i also rotate my shoulder in a circular motion while i shrug, it will sometimes hurt a little bit. Also, I feel a constant need to shrug on both sides, almost every minute, sometimes more often. On my right side, if i perform a full shrug (full range of motion, no rotation), i feel 2 cracks. I also feel the need to rotate my neck alot. If I bend my neck sharply and slowly to the right, I sometimes feel a big crack.
Once i was sitting a job interview, and obviously I tried very hard not to be shrugging and rotating my head, when i finally stepped out of the interview, I shrugged on my left side, i felt a very big crack and it was painful to shrug. From memory that one big crack I felt, felt more like alot of smaller ones as I was shrugging. However, it felt very liberating to have actually cracked it after spending so long trying to not crack it. Probably because it felt loose again when i had finally shrugged.
My background is that I did tae kwon do for about 5 years, do intense 'cardio' 4-5 times a week, and lift weights at the gym also. I don't take any joint supplements, but i do take fish oil and whey protein once a day.
The constant need to crack is very annoying, and very noticable to other people. Whats wrong with me?
