Patient: I have pains in the back of my head occasionally, and when I pop my neck, the pain stops. Is this normal?

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.There are two possibilities here, ei ther it could be due to a muscular spasm or it could also be due to a pinched nerve. If it persists beyond 2 weeks, just get it examined by your family physician. You can take Advil SOS if needed.Hope this was helpful,Regards.
