My neck is often sore and pops in any number of directions...BUT, this is so weird, it occasionally let's lose a spasm that clears all popping.

It comes back soon enough, but this gives me hope that if I sought some medical attention (yeah right I'm skeptical as hell these days)...

I just want to know that if it's possible to manipulate my neck in such away that this most annoying symptom could be minimized or gone altogether.

I believe the ligament affected is hight up at the base of my head.

this is all really to embarrasing to talk to a doctor about anyway, so here I am starting with you guys.

Why is your neck embarassing??

You NEED to talk to a doctor about a neck pain so high up! I don't know
anything about Lyme Disease but I do know about neck pain. Do not let
anyone "manipulate" your neck unless that medical specialist is highly
qualified. Even then ... neck manipulation can be dangerous.

You could have something wrong with you that's not a symptom of Lyme.
You don't know. Keep your head securely on your shoulders. Neck pain
hurts like Hell. I wonder ... How old are you? Do you know someone
old who might tell you about Arthritis, disc problems, Scoliosis, Stenosis,
Impinged nerves ... I'm just reaching here but it will give you something
to talk about at your next party. Or just hang out at Google for awhile.

Take Care!
