Stiff neck 7 years after 2-level ACDF

I woke up in the middle of the night with neck pain into my shoulder blade area on the left side. This feels just like what I had before, but I previously had this on my right side. I also noticed my left arm felt numb and tingly right down into my pinky finger and ring finger. That eventually went away, but the stiff neck has remained all day. It hurts down into my left shoulder blade and it's difficult to move my head. Of course I'm nervous that I am having issues with the adjacent discs. I had a 2-level c5-7 ACDF 7 years ago with really not much of any problems since then. In fact, I have been doing kickboxing three days a week for the last 4 months and have been feeling great. Have others gone this long before and experienced something similar? Does this sound like the next disc might be affected?
