Full Nelson, crepitus and cracks

  • Hello all. One month ago I was stupid enough to let myself get into a full Nelson and the person applying it pushed apparently too hard. Haven't had pain except that particular Nelson moment, but ever since I've felt/heard grinding noises and cracks in my neck, especially when I wake up but also at random during the day.

    So after extensive reading I found this forum. Any ideas what to do? I have no pain, just crepitus and cracks. Reading about the (apparently low) risk of tearing and blood clots also worries me a lot. I understand that some people here do this for fun or relief but waking up at night with neck sounds really freaks me out.

    Btw, rolling the shoulders both ways makes the grinding go away for a while but I always wake up cracking...So I'd be grateful for any advice.
