Thank you for your query.

I understand you have undergone cervical spine fusion.

It could be due to strain of your neck muscles or cervical disc prolapse.

Please try simple pain medicines and if you don't get better you may need to take an MRI of the cervical spine.

Do write back for follow up queries that you may have.

Thank you
