It hasn't got worse over the months

Thank you for your question, pain that is off sudden onset and goes away quickly is not serious, it in most cases is due to stress, lack of sleep, visual problems or neck problems. Some cases high blood pressure can also give such symptoms. Tumor or cancer does not causes such small bursts of pain and its pain increases progressively overtime. You can use tylenol and advil for this pain, do neck exercises and check your blood pressure regularly will help. Thank you.
