What happened to my head?

So I was trying to lay down and my head hit the mattress and then i heard a popping sound 3 times like how you crack your knuckles. I felt burning where it was and I was crying so bad. I was terrified but I didn't drop feel dizzy or anything. I had I headache and a couple of mine later my head was sore. What happened??

Well, it's hard to say.  This doesn't sound like a migraine which can have a popping type sound mostly due to sensitivity.  It sounds like it happened in reverse.  Could you have possibly cracked your neck high up?  Cavitation happens.  And this may have in turn affected the muscles that are on your skull.  We have many.  And they tighten and that could feel like soreness and headache.  No lasting effects from this events?  Was it gone later?  
Yes it was gone after a day but after I felt burning and after a while it started to get sore
