What to do if I had a cervical fusion a few years ago just a few days ago my neck started to hurt on the left side with a headache I wake up with this?

In brief: Time

Hopefully, you just have a cervical strain.
If the symptoms persist, them see your Dr. for an evaluation. Good luck.

In brief: Hard to tell

If you really had a successful fusion a few years ago then I would be less worried about the fusion than other things that affect your neck - sprains, a new disc herniation etc.
If this is a really bad headache a vascular problem could be considered. If this does not get better after a few days or if you have other symptoms I would see your doctor
