Once in a while I get a weird electric jolt in the side of my neck, totally out of the blue. What's going on?

Occasionally but infrequently, say once every couple of months, I'll be minding my own business when out of the blue I get a sudden jolt in the left side of my neck, like a mild electric shock. It's not particularly painful, but it's definitely startling. This has been happening for a couple of years now, and I haven't been able to identify any trigger, except maybe that it seems to happen most often when I'm feeling a bit stressed or tense. I mentioned this to my chiropractor and he was as mystified as I am. What could be causing this sensation?
