Hello: I am wondering if this is a very serious condition. My neck grinds and cracks with weird noises when I turn my head from side to side. No pai?

In brief: Probably not

Just grinding and cracking can be just arthritic changes of your spine.
If no pain and no neurological involvement than no treatment is required.

In brief: Probably not

The medical community used to think that cracking the knuckles will lead to arthritis etc.
..Currently there is no concrete evidence to support that theory. So, cracking your knuckles, joints, back, neck without pain...I am not concerned. If you are worried, check with your doc.. Good luck.
