Good evening doctor, I’m 27 years old. I want to ask, sometimes I like having a section of my head when it is moved by a “tek” sound (sounds like something is broken) but I don’t experience dizziness. I am afraid that in the long term there will be consequences.

Hello Apriliani

Thank you for the question.

The "tek" sound that is heard around the head when moved can be caused by the following conditions:

Detached air trapped in joint fluid around the head and spine
Friction between the bone and / or cartilage around the head and spine

Cervical spondylosis (arthritis in the upper spine)
Other factors, such as joint dislocation, jaw disorders, head injuries, tinnitus, calcification, delusional disorders, muscle cramps, etc.

Not all of the above conditions are dangerous and cause long-term side effects later. So far, as long as it does not appear pain, swelling, tingling, numbness, limitation of movement, or other more severe complaints, it is likely that your condition is not dangerous.

So as not to repeat, try to do it first:

Regularly exercise and meditation, so that your head and neck muscles don't strain
Warm compresses on your head or neck
Don't stress too much or worry too much
Avoid the habit of ringing the neck
Fix your body position when doing activities, including by not using a pillow that is too high during sleep, fixing the distance between the eyes and the computer when working, and so on
Discipline to live a healthy lifestyle

At the outbreak of COVID-19 disease, you are advised to postpone seeing a doctor unless in severe cases, so that your potential for contracting the disease can be reduced. Therefore, if your complaint improves with the above efforts, you should not panic right away. Conversely, if the complaint actually gets worse, or appears accompanied by other danger signs as we mentioned before, you can check yourself directly to the doctor or neurologist the closest.

Hope this helps ...
