Not really .: You can expect problems in the shoulder , arm , forearm , and hand due to nerve compression . Otherwise the pain is localized to the neck not going to the low back.

Lower back pain: Hello, arthritis is an autoimmune condition that can affect many different areas of the body. It is most likely that if arthritis exists in your neck, then the same condition probably exists in your lower back as we'll. Follow up with your doctor for therapy that may improve both areas of discomfort.

Same body, so expect same result. Same mileage. You can't use neck joints without using lower back ones. That which caused the neck will have also caused the lower back.

Couple of things: Sounds as if either there's traction on the cord sometimes referred to as a tethered cord...or you may be experiencing a funny thing called Lhermitte's sign though your description's not classic. Have you recently developed SEVERE migraine like headaches by chance with fever? Hopefully not..just a question. In any event, any of these possibilities deserves a workup by a doctor. Cheers!
