You pinched a nerve. It happens to everyone. It hurts and sometimes you can see stars after it. Sometimes if it is close to your ear it sounds like an explosive sound but it is just the ligaments popping like a rubber band if you hold it out and it comes together suddenly. If you get pain and swelling afterwards, see a doctor.

Hi, thank you for your reply... well, I understand pinching a nerve from what you have explained... but i think you have misunderstood the location of this problem... if you have a picture of someone head... imagine it as a square around it... it's at the top left corner of the box (on my head) that i am have this pain and not directly behind the ear...

so if you like at the left corner of my head...

anyone else convinced this is a simple nerve problem? and are there any risks/complications with a problem like this
I've been suffering for a similar problem.

Two weeks ago, 75 intense pushups, as I stood up, my right eye drooped down for about 3 seconds (like I had no control of it) and then came right.
Since then I've had a headache. After two days my neck became stiff and has bugged me since. Have an MRI scheduled next week however I'm hoping this is just a pinched nerve.

I noticed that when I sleep flat I get A LOT of pressure in my head and can hear my heart beating so generally I've kept my head upright/elevated. Last night I was exhausted, fell asleep flat and woke up 3 hrs later to popping at the back of head (pretty much just to the side of where you have that little bump on the back of your head). Kinda sounded like a plate of rice bubbles going off. Heard about 7 pops.

Everything's fine but have been exhausted and dizzy since this all started. Can a pinched nerve in your neck restrict blood flow? I know I had a lot of pressure there when I was doing the pushups.

Any ideas guys?
Blue Silver - why don't you go and get it checked? An MRI perhaps?

I saw a specialist today who had been doing Nuerology for 30 years and he had no idea what could make a popping sound. Apparently you're not meant to hear anything if you are suffering from a bleed. He mentioned something about the sinus' as well. Not the Nasal sinus but something that goes around the back of your head and that this could be causing my problems. Otherwise I may have a possible bleed.

Anyway, an MRI has been scheduled for me for Wednesday (2.5 weeks after this began!). It'll be good to get piece of mind so I can start putting my head down at night without worrying too much about this pressure and popping.

Oh, and is it me or a Doctors guessing a lot more than they should be? Since this began I've been diagnosed with Anxiety, Dehydration, an Ear infection, a possible heart condition, a torn neck tendon... the list goes on! I've seen six doctors and they tend to be a little more reactive to problems rather than proactive...

Will update this when I get an answer to my problem.
Ok... said I'd update this with the results so here I am.

Apparently, no problem found in my MRI. Was advised that I had a post exertional migraine which caused this 2.5 weeks episode of hell.

Popping sounds haven't appeared again either... I have no idea what they were but it scared the .... outta me. Going to take it easy next time I decide to jump out of bed and do pushups.

Anyway, good luck.
