    $500 and no answer, that is a part of what is wrong with our health care system! You gave all the information that is needed to tell you what is wrong that no test any dr! can give you to tell him the problem, you have tight muscles, muscles pinched in your neck and they are what are giving you all your problems! And it is fairly simple to release those muscles to get rid of the pain! Been there and done that! The tight muscles make it so the vertebrae in your neck are pulled close enough to catch on each other to cause pains while turning your head! The pinched muscles give you the pains in your head! The constant cracking of your neck was to keep it free for when the muscles are pulling they tend to make a joint settle in one spot which becomes another pain when you have to break it free again to move! All those pains are consistant with pinched muscles in your neck! Here is how to release those muscles and your back muscles because they share some together, doing the back one once a day and the others several more times a day:NeckInvert your hands and put them next to your head placing your thumbs in under your ears and you lower your head until your neck is fully extended, release the pressure but hold your head there for another 30 seconds!With your neck in the bent position, replace your thumbs in under the ears and your fingers behind your neck but right next to your skull this time! Press your fingers and thumbs together again and hold! Relax your body while waiting! When the muscles have all released, slowly lift your head until it’s level again, release the pressure but hold your head like that for another 30 seconds!Back: (do from a sitting position)Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body! Place your right hand over your left shoulder and find the muscles next to your spine and press on them and hold! After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward, keeping your left arm fairly straight as you do! When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, release the pressure but remain there for another 30 seconds! Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side! You may have to do them for a few days to get a full release of the muscles and to keep them released! Any muscle that has been pinched for a number of years wants to stay where it is so repeated attempts to correct them are going to be needed! Without doing the follow up you are setting yourself back up for the pains to come back at full bore again!
