Post Neck sounds

Hi!

Over the last year, my neck has started making crackling sounds. It goes right up my neck and up the back of my head. No matter which way I turn it, it crackles. There is no pain. My chiropractor took x-rays and said no arthritis present. I had another doctor take x-rays and said no arthritis. I don't have much of a curve in my neck. I was told that I might have extra motion in my neck, gas bubbles, or extra calcium. I thought crackling meant crepitus/arthritis. What is going on with my neck? My husband says his does the same thing and everyone has it. Recently I started a splint for my tmj and now my neck makes more noises. I am in my late 40's. I do have some slight herniation in my neck from an auto accident years ago but I haven't had pain in over 8 years. I did start more frequent chiropractic this past year, but, they keep saying how great I'm doing and I have no pain. Should I be concerned?
