i know how you feel,as i have had the very same things.

-the #1 lesson i learned is just because the drs have not seen something does mean that is isn't there. personally i have been under stress/anxiety.[everyone is and has been] but i have never had anyone tell me thats what is causing my pain.

i do not know the field of your dr. and i am not a dr. i am a homemaker,but have you considered seeing a good neurologist/neurosurgeon? they were the ones that found the cause of mine. and when i read you said''sounds in your neck''thats what decided for me to reply. because after my surgeon corrected my problem the sounds stopped.

if i were you i would see a neurologist,he may very well know and set you up with whom ever he beleives can fix you. good luck and don't give up.
