In brief: Compression

If you get these frequently, probably due to nerves that run to head getting sqeezed by neck muscles.
When your spine degenerates, it depends on the muscles to hold it together. Muscles get tired and go into spasm, compressing the nerve. Get spinal xray, apply ice to neck, use Ibuprofen for inflammation.
