At the outset, I would like to say that I don't know what-caused-what because the VS and neck problems started simultaneously. I was having a lot of neck pain and my muscles were extremely sore and tight. While running on the treadmill one day (about two months later), I realized a shooting pain going through my arms. After having MRIs and other tests performed, it became apparent that I had a pinched nerve in my C6 region along with mild herniation's and bulging discs. Since then, I've had cervical blocks performed (the injection of anti-inflammatory steroids at the site of and surrounding the pinched nerve). This has helped a lot with the neck pain, shoulder pain, shooting pain, and spasms. However, it has not changed the VS at all. I thought I'd post this because of the correlation between neck pain and VS.
