Shoulder pain radiating to neck, feeling like electric shock, x-ray shows spasms. Suggestions?

Since I was young I had bad shoulder pain (right) that slowly over the years became shoulder and neck pain . It would feel very very tense n It hurt to look down. It would b the back of my shoulder and up the curve of my neck. It actually got to be tolerable over the years but sometimes out of no where I will get a very short and intense electric shock feeling in my neck. Last week I see separated my ac and during X-rays he said I has some spasms going up my neck and something was worn in the curve of my neck. Sorry ant remember what the word was. It was just a pa at an after hours clinic so he didn t tell me much. Now the shocks are all day just less intense and kind if in my shoulder too

It seems that you might be having some problem in your cervical spines giving you some pressure or irritation on nerves giving rise to pain, stiffness on shoulder and neck.
There might be possibility of having extra cervical rib.
Doctor might told you about x-ray report that loss of normal cervical curvature.
Consult orthopedic surgeon and get examined.
Meanwhile take some muscle relaxant medicine.
Physiotherapy, short way diathermy and cervical traction will help a lot.
Ok and take care.
