buffalo hump
Oct 17, 2003

Have you heard of anyone with a buffalo hump complain about neck making a poping sound when move head up and down? It's very frustrating.

Response from Dr. Moyle

This is a new one to me. I can't particularly thinking why a fat and connective tissue 'lump' should make a noise. It makes the wonder whether that might be a problem in your shoulder and neck area. It certainly worthwhile getting your doctor to examine the area carefully and perhaps considering an x-ray or scan of the area to rule out any other problem

Best wishes
