Whiplash: If the sounds appear to be coming from the neck, they may be from motions of ligaments when flexing and extending your neck. It doesn't appear to be a serious problem as you're not experiencing pain and you seem to have full range of motion. However if you still have concerns, consult your neurosurgeon again.
