Hi doctor,

I was writing hunched over my notebook for about 1.5 hours. When I straightened up doing back stretches, it popped loudly. I felt a sudden headache immediately as well as a feeling of confusion and memory failure like losing my mind. Why?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The pop sound which you heard may be due to crepitus, which many people feel after being in particular posture for a long time.
  • Your loss of orientation may be caused by temporarily reduced blood flow to the brain as in vertebrobasilar insufficiency.
