Why do I hear a squelch in neck after waking up?

Hello, This is now the 6 th time this has happened over the course of a few years. When getting up from a lying position, ofter first thing in the morning, i hear and feel a sort of squelch in the back of my neck . From that moment i am stuck, unable to get up. I can t take the weit of my head but can gradually roll onto my side and slip of the bed. Once upright moving my head in any direction causes severe pain. It takes a few days to ease. What do you thinkis going on? Thhank uou for you time.

Hi, Thanks for query,
You have not mentioned your age.
If you are elderly then it might be due to cervical spondilitis.
Due to osteo artheritis changes and osteiophytes formation you might be having cracking noise and neck pain while raising your head.
Go for x ray cervical region and find out the cause.
Ok and bye.
