The kind of pain that you are experiencing might be due to cervical spondylosis. Neck pain is very common age related problem where the bones of the body slowly disintegrate as we age.This frequently results in arthritis or cervical spondylosis or the degeneraation of the joints in the neck.But at times similar condition is also seen in TICS(Tourette Syndrome).TICS are sudden twitches,movenents or sounds.Only a doctor will be able to give you the right diagnose for this.It would be better that you visit one as soon as possible because if not treated early,it might just flareup into something uncontrolablae.
