Our expert says:
By clicking your neck, you can cause damage to the facet joints between the cervical vertebrae. A process of inflammation can irritate the nerves leaving the cervical spine. This can be the cause for the parathesia (tingling feeling in your finger). I suggest that you consult your doctor for x-rays of your cervical spine and a possible MRI scan. Treatment will depend on the findings.
In the interim, you can use Ibuprofen tablets and Robaxin to ease the muscle tension and to alleviate the pain. These products are available over the counter.
