Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist 's  Response
Your pain will be related to cervical as well lumbar spine. You can go for complite screening of lumbar and cervical spine with mri and based on report visit orthopedic as well as Physiotherapist. Here orthopedic doctor will help you on medication and if needed surgical view. As well physio treatment will help to relax spinal soft tissues with ultrasound and spinal stretches. Take a good spinal exercise program for strengthening of your spinal muscles.
If mri is normal there may be deficiency of calcium and vitamin d. So have that from natural supplement range. You can also use hot and cold pack frequently in day time.
Usually it can not be associated with seizures. Because classical symptom of seizers are involuntary movement of body part. And that thing is absent in your case.
So I suggest to follow all steps as given above and look for good result. Take care.
