Hi, I would like your opinion as to whether I might have caused myself an injury to my neck. I have a tick due to which I have, long term and deliberately, been turning my head mainly on its vertical axis (I.e to circle on the axis of my face and of the back of my head); have been doing this increasingly constantly for probably a year and some months. Tonight after doing this, I started feeling a little light-headed or dizzy, the sensation being mainly concentrated around the nape of my neck. I have also noticed very light cracking in my neck if I turn my head. These are not very strong symptoms and may be partly due to fatigue, but I am wondering if I haven’t broken, pinched or otherwise deformed something in the vertebrae around where my neck connects to my skull. Could someone please advise me as to whether I have anything to fear at this point (e.g. eventual paralysis?) I think I can try to control my aforementioned tick (I have already been scared out of doing it tonight) but is there a chance that I have caused serious damage to my upper spinal column, etc? I have no other symptoms to report except for a very light feeling of pressure/strain in the back of the neck and it is only periodic, all the sensations I described are rather light, but am checking just in case. Thanks a lot.
Medications: Just sometimes cetirizin for allergy and headache medicine
General Information: I am an OCD and anxiety sufferer – hence the tick which I outlined in my main question.
