The question is do you have a current diagnosis for your cervical neck problem?  Are you under treatment by a VA doc for it? If you say yes to those questions then i would get that information along with your STR from sept and submit new evidence to your claim through e-benifits or however you initiated your claim!!

The VA is full of it. Now they do realize that their goal is to deny you.However you have the law on your side. Having did some research, Your Cervical Spine MRI may show spondylosis. That is Arthritis. Now the Law says Arthritis is presumed to be related to service if diagnosed within the first post service year. That is 365 days after you separate from service.  You may want to reach out and touch them or at least get a rep who has a set.
