C spine: It sounds like a slipped disc or degenerative disc disease between the sixth and seventh cervical vertebra. It doesn’t increase with exertion? If it does then it could be an angina equivalent. If not, look up cervical spine physical therapy exercises and try those. If that doesn’t work then connect with the health tap doctor to get an MRI and treatment
