No neck stiffness, work for utilities company... I am field tech, no history of injury that I can remember. I take a daily vitamin, aller-tec for allergies, and 10mg benicar for blood pressure. I have not had any numbness or tingling. No redness or swelling. I did ask my doctor about this once, several years ago, and was told it was nothing... Basically got the brush off.

Hello,
It’s my first priority to serve you.
Thanks for providing more information.
Well as you describe,intermittent pain can be associated with Nerve impingement in it's path.
MRI can be helpful in determining the underlying cause.
Physical therapy and a clinical examination by a neurologist should be considered.
