Neck spasms

Neck spasms

Does anyone have neck spasms. Just had the first today. It's on the right side of my neck a few inches above my collar bone. It felt like a vibrator was placed under my skin. It lasted for almost 16 minutes. Is this unusual?

Pain in neck going down left arm?

I basically fully recovered from my previous attacks but this one is different. I have weakness, stiffness in a variety of areas(legs, arms, fingers, feet) that come and go by the day.
