Neck pain on left side. I also get a pinching feeling in the same side of head and the back of head starts burning?

There is a thing: called "exploding head syndrome", which is a type of headache. It doesn't usually cause strange feelings in legs though. It seems possible that you just have a lot of anxiety about something, but nonetheless, with any severe headache and other unexplained symptoms you should probably seek a medical opinion.
