For years now, i have had instances where i turn my head to one side and i get a very intense, sharp pain up from the base of my neck to the back of my head. When they occur they hurt extremely bad and sometimes cause my tongue to go numb. My doctor said they were muscles spasms because i slept wrong or something. However, i sleep on large, soft pillows and wake up in the same manner i did when i went to sleep. I just wonder how can muscle spasms cause my tongue to go numb? Maybe the muscle is pinching a nerve? This event happens several times a day, everyday.
