My neck problem.

Never a cheery blog from Jack-Hunter, eh?
I'm making this blog to talk about something that's been killing me for the past three years, physically.
It all started three years ago, when I had this incredibly odd habit of jerking my head back hard. I can't remember why I was doing it. It sounds like a very pointless and ridiculous thing to do, especially now in hindsight..since I know what it's caused.
Anyway..after that incident (I jerked it back about 10 times maybe) that only lasted a day, i've had this incredible pain inside my head (where the spine connects to the skull, presumably.) And i've gone to doctors who have prescribed me Naproxen and muscle relaxants. Nothing works.
Hell, i've found that the only time that the pain goes away is when I take a hot shower, when I lay down still, when I tie a cloth around my neck almost to the point of cutting off circulation, and when I take 3 extra strength tylenols.
I've gone to the chiropractor twice (although a year was in between the visits) and it seems to help..but only for a few hours, then the pain comes back.
So guys. What the hell do I do?
This pain is SO bad, I feel like an old man living off his last days.
This is probably the main contributor to my major depression.
One time it went away while I was running..but it hurt like hell up until it suddenly went away.
I've had MRI's done, x-ray's, and the ing doctor's say nothing is wrong.
Tired of this shit.
You can recommend me over the counter pills and all, but I want a permanent solution.
If the doctors find nothing wrong..then what the ?
It's been three years. And I 'know' this isn't out of stress.
Forgot to mention that when I look up (as in, moving my skull upwards as in looking at the ceiling) it gets worse. Sometimes I hear a loud "crack!" when I do it, too. And then when I turn my head left or right, I can hear (and feel..slightly) miniature "cracks" like if bones are misplaced or something.
Sometimes I look down (move my skull down till my chin touches my collarbone) and push my head further down with my hand..and I hear things pop and stretch.
