Muscle strain: It is likely that you may have a muscle strain or a pinched nerve that gets aggravated when you laugh. It is difficult to comment without an examination. Please see a doctor who can make a more informed diagnosis after a thorough examination

Muscular: Your laughing appears to trigger a muscle cramping in your neck. This is similar to a "charley horse" and is a transient muscle spasm. Since you're not experiencing diffuse muscle cramps the cause of your neck spasms most likely has nothing to do with deficiencies of calcium, magnesium or potassium.
