Doctor said it was from a lifetime of training, lifting, etc. The final straw was lifting, when the disc burst. Felt like a lightning bolt went through my head. That happened Memorial day weekend. Had a numb, weak arm for over three months so I finally got the surgery on Tuesday. Now I have a bionic neck.
Nearly one week later, still have a stiff neck (but it's getting better) and still hurts to swallow food (also getting better). Hopefully I can start lifting again by next Monday. I'm getting scrawny.
