My wife felt a sort of popping in the front of her head. What could be the reason for this?

A few minutes a go my wife came home saying she didn t feel too well. She had just been horse riding and said that when she was straining to pull the girth tight she felt a sort of popping in the front of her head . She is 49. She says she just wants to lie down for half an hour and will be OK but it sounds worrying to me.

Thanks for writing to us.
Having a popping sound in the head is worrisome. Due to sudden stress there might be a ruptured minor blood vessel. There might have been some injury producing the sound against the hard skull. She needs to be investigated for high B. P. or any brain hemorrhage.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
