Kyphosis: Normally your neck has a lordosis. Kyphosis is when the normal curve is reversed. This can put stress on the spine and lead to bulging discs. Tears in the annulus of the disc or nerve impingement can cause neck and shoulder pain. I would go to your neurosurgeon or spine surgeon to determine the cause of the pain.
