I don't usually post here but read your question and yes I have had that happen. It went on and off for a period of years. My neck would send this horrific pain down my neck through my shoulders and arms and up into my head. It got to the point where when I moved my head back or side to side I would get the pain too. I feel for you and would ask was this a one time occurance or more? Do you have other symptoms? Did they do a Mri & a MRa of your Head or only your spine? Did the numbness go away? I hope you feel better & wish you the best.
