I'm having shooting pain that is starting at the top of my spine and shooting up my neck?

Neck strain. Try Naproxen twice daily and Tylenol (acetaminophen) four times daily for a couple of days. If not improving, find an inexpensive chiropractor and go for only a few visits. If no improvement after that, see your regular doctor. If there was no associated injury, l doubt it's disc related and mist likely a severe muscle spasm pinching a nerve. Could benefit from trigger point injections from doctor.
