Many people have-: -falls of this type every day. You may have some early degerative disease in your cervical spine. If this just happened & you have not had this before, to you it may seem very worrisome. For now rest ice NSAIDS if you are able, & activity modification. Should clear fairly soon @ Ur age give it some time. If persistent or worsens see your PCP 4 eval & referrals can B made if indicated.
