Back of eye pain

Now I have other problems going on that are most likely from my neck.

I'm wonder if the electrical burning sensation I'm feeling at the back of my eye can be caused from neck problems, such nerves getting compressed.

I don't know if this would be the right place but I'm asking about my eye right.

Thank you to anyone who can help me.

Yes.  The symptom you describe could easily be due to a condition called occipital neuralgia.  This condition is caused by a pinched or inflamed nerve at the back of the neck.  It can often be treated with an injection of steroid and anesthetic in the area of the nerve root.  A neurologist would be the best person to diagnose and treat this condition.
