What could cause a burning flushing feeling up neck to head? My shoulders are also very sore for no known reason.

Muscle spasm : You may have spasm of neck & shoulder muscles, possibly by exercise or work overuse, tension, bad posture, or poor sleep. Start with therapeutic massage focused on those areas; see if that helps. If uncomfortable sensations (lightening-like or burning for example) shoot from your neck & shoulder to fingers, then you may have nerve injury, which calls for clinician examination.
