Brief Answer:
It may be seen in cervical muscle strain or spasm

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Such a sensation or pain may be seen in muscular pain due to cervical muscle strain or spasm. This will not show up in MRI etc and will relieve when muscle strain is taken care of. Its possibly a part of tension headache.

I have also heard of such sensations during yoga classes in XXXXXXX So if you are spiritually inclined, that may also be a reason.

If scans are normal, there is nothing to be scared of.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
