Possible: Sounds like you may have pinched a nerve when "cracking your neck". It is also possible that a muscle has also been injured or is in spasm and your neck movement may make it worse. Something is out of balance - ? 4 ekgs in 4 months at your age? What does your chiropractor say about pain and spasm and anxiety/depression?
