ACDF surgery, now my neck/skull "pops"?

Hello, I have been experiencing a "popping" that occurs between my neck and my skull. I had ACDF surgery in April 2009 and have had PT, massages, daily applications of heat and ice, Celebrex and Muscle Relaxers and was also taking Vicodin up until about 2 months ago. My understanding is that post-op ACDF patients should not have their cervical spine adjusted by a chiropractor, but that has been the only treatment I have found online.

I just had a cervical MRI and it was normal, yet almost 2 years after surgery, I am still in pain and now this "popping" has started.

Since the surgery, I have also been diagnosed with Reyunards (sp) Phenomenon and Fibromyalgia. Could my surgery have created these other issues?

Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.
