Cause for the severe neck pain?

I have had neck pain on the left side both left back and left side for several weeks. Advil does not help it at all. The only relief is lying down and not moving. The soreness is felt with each movement. I also feel cracking noise which is not painful several times with each move. Wonder if this could be just fibromyalgia or TMJ. Have not seen a doctor but have an appointment next month.

Hi,
From history it seems that you might be having some degenerative changes occurred in cervical spine giving rise osteo-artheritis of cervical spines.
Go for x-ray cervical region.
Afterwards go for physiotherapy and short way diathermy.
Take some calcium supplements.
Ok and take care.
