Thank you for your question. Your report suggests that there are disc prolapsed condition at C3-4, C4-5, C5-6. Therefore, this disc bulge may lead to nerve irritation in the cervical (neck) spine because of injury/prolapse where contact between the edges of the vertebrae. In few people, this pain may be referred and perceived as occurring in the back of head (as electric sensation)- LHERMITTES SIGN, shoulders, arms or chest, rather than just the neck. Other symptoms may include vertigo, nausea (dizziness) and stiffness can be intermittent. It will be best that you consult a neurologist who would like to prescribe Pain killers, steroid and muscle relaxants. Other treatments could be cervical orthosis such as a soft cervical collar/stiffer neck brace to restrict neck movement. In addition, cervical traction may also be suggested by the doctor, if condition is severe. Hope this helps.
