I have no pain per say in my neck however I have a TON of neuropathic pain in my arms and hands. Now when I first had my spinal injury and found out about my buldging discs I had major problems with neck pain. I had no clue my issue's as of late were due to my old spinal injury.
I dont have actual pain in the disc area, just the arm and shoulder pain, where the muscles ( i think ) try to over compensate to hold the weight of the head up, and then spasm, and the nerve root is compressed in the herniated area - and sends a burning like fire down my arm sometimes. Can be very frustrating at times, Hope your feeling ok
