I am 18 now, but at school at around 13, I got punched in the neck.

Now my neck never clicked before then, or at least I never noticed it.

Since the punch, it clicked when I turned to the right.

Over the years though, it has "developed", so now I can crack it by turning my head quickly either way.
Furthermore, I get this sort of "inverse" crack, where the bottom left of my neck clicks, but feels like it should be clicking the other way.
It also clicks automatically, which is the most annoying thing in the world

1) do you think my neck would have clicked had i not got punched
2) i have been to doctors and chiros who can't help.
when i last went to the doctor, he said

"is there any pain"
so i told him
after that he made me do some neck stretches, and because i could do them he told me i was fine

i kinda feel i'd like an x-ray, just to either confirm my doubts or put my mind at rest.
is that too much to ask?

please reply, thank you
