Neck cracking and grinding?

Hi ladies, I am wondering if anyone has experienced neck cracking and grinding when on hormonal therapy. I have been on Exemestane for more than 5 yeas now and just noticed neck cracking on one side of my neck. No pain and numbness of other parts of my body. Hopefully it's not something serious.

    I'm not on hormone blockers - I gave up after less than a year - but my neck pops and grinds constantly due to arthritis in my cervical spine. I've had to get cortisone shots when it causes nerve problems.

    I've had neck cracking for about 10 years, and I've been on some kind of AH or AI for 11 years now. It's from arthritis and narrowing between my C6 and C7. My mom had the same thing and wasn't on any med, so I can't attribute it to anything other than aging and maybe DNA.
