So i was getting gas and turned my head and i could hear popping in my neck. Most people wouldn't care but i cant stop checking to see its still there. And it is. Do you all think its worrying besides my ocd.

Our necks and most other parts of our body can crack / pop. I would consider it normal. As long as you haven't had any kind of accident or got a blow to that part of your body. Which I assume you didn't. Thus I would consider it to be all normal. If I move my neck as I sit here writing this I can hear sounds like cracking and the likes. More just hear it more in the ears. But is coming from the neck as I turn it. The more we are aware of it, the more we tend to look for it. Chances are it happens another thousand times a day that we are not aware of. Because we are doing other things. Not thinking of it.

I agree completely with @Cuchculan . I also hear this sound often when turning my head. It's nothing to worry about. It's probably due to tension, or otherwise a lack of regular exercise/stretching. I once mentioned to my doctor that most of my bones tend to make noise when I move, and she said I should start exercising. Haha.

100% agree with all above. My popping sound sometimes is loud to the point I’m surprised people near me don’t turn around wondering what that was!
