As far as why I wont let them is mostly because I have a huge fear of it when i was younger i had a chiro pop it and it literally almost made me pass out so as soon as someone touches my neck i just tense up and cant seem to relax enough to let them,,,, I know by the way my neck feels that it needs work but my concern is now could it be making this feeling on my eyes happen, I know that the sinus stuff now makes sense as they can never find any reason for me to feel the sinus symptoms like the drainage and ears eelign full and such….
