I have this pain in the back of my neck between two vertibrae. When I touch it (sometimes- everyday almost, but not at every moment), it feels like I'm touching a nerve, sort of like a little electric jolt that really hurts. It tends to get bad if I carry heavy things and such, like it gets compressed or something. Has anyone ever heard of such a thing, and what can I do to stop it?

Hello Steved,

What can you do about your pain? See a neurologist/spinal surgeon. I can give you no better advice than that. Oh yes, one other bit of advice - DON'T delay seeing a medical professional. Steve, I'm talking about a doctor who specializes in back problems.

I wish you the best. Find the best doctor you can find. Please do let us know how things go.
