Yes, a degenerative disc and bone spurs can cause these kind of symtoms. Anything that presses on a nerve can cause motor or sensory changes. Also, muscle spasms in the suboccipital and cervical paraspinals muscles can also cause pain in the posterior (back) of the head and neck. - N    How to Stretch all the Neck Muscles
