Go see your doc: One of the things you have to rule out is if he is having symptoms consistent with cervical radiculopathy/radiculitis. This is an irritation of the nerves arising from the neck which may be due to a leaking disc or stenosis.

If the pain is: related to specific movement then it is likely musculoskeletal. If it is triggered by breathing or swallowing, or other autonomous motion that we have no control of, you will need to see a healthcare provider to rule out other causes such as potential heart attack, blood clot or aortic aneurysm. ...Read more

Nothing to worry about if you had no injury or accident and there are no other symptoms. ...Read more
