Every time head is moved, Adam's apple rubs and clicks off . Have elevated mods, fatigue. What's this ?

Everytime I move my head left, right, up or down my Adam s apple rubs and clicks off what seemingly is my thyroid . This has been going on for the past year along with elevated moods l, depressed moods, fatigue , short day - two day bursts of energy and back to depressed mood. Completing school work has become increasingly difficult. My op said the clicking sound was my spine and sent me to PT l. My physical therapist said the clicking sound has nothing to do with my spine and is coming from the front of my neck .

Thanks for writing to us.
The rubbing and clicking at the Adam's apple is due to the rubbing of the cartilage. This is not related to thyroid gland issues. It can be due to decreased joint lubricants in the area.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
