Left neck felt sharp pain. Now dull pain and left arm burns n back n top of head hurts. What could cause this?

Probably soft tissue: Assuming you have previously been healthy the source of pain is probably soft tissue irritation (ligament or muscle) causing muscle spasm in the neck. This can cause "referred pain" to your head and arm. A less likely cause would be a disc injury causing irritation or pressure on a nerve to your arm. The symptoms should go away soon, but if not please see your doctor. Read more

Occipital neuralgia: Hi Amila,
You may have an irritation of one of your occipital nerves. These nerves are formed from upper nerve roots of the cervical spine, and they course through a couple of layers of neck musculature to innervate your scalp. You may have some tight neck muscles compressing this nerve intermittently. Try icing your neck, physical therapy, or see a dr for an occipital nerve block procedure. Read more

The headache could be related but there is little to go on here with your question. I can think that there is some intensity to his orgasm that even could cause a seizure-like reaction. I would see the doc. Read more
