Symptoms: Head pains and spasms in upper back and shoulders
Read and understood your history of head pains sometimes sharp or sometimes they make you feel a little dizzy but nothing major but recently had one and it made you feel dizzy for a second but then you started to have spasms in the upper back and shoulders and then into the arms. Shoulders are a little achy now and head just hurts a bit .
All these symptoms are suggestive of a problem in the cervical spine and an MRI of it will help the diagnosis as well as a clinical examination help more.
Further treatment will depend upon the investigations.
Till then take a rest, avoid sudden movements of the neck over shoulder, no driving.
Hope this helps you.
