From the description provided by you, I feel that the neck pain could be due to improper position of the neck while working.
Let me explain you.
As you are in IT and work on system regularly.
ok.. the pain is more for left side
Thats because of stress in muscles.
I would advise you to see an orthopedician.
Meanwhile follow these measures.
1. Raise the monitor height to your eye level.
where you dont have to look down to view.
2. Regular neck exercises.
you can do it regularly while working to.
on and off or as possible for 5 mins.
You have to rotate your head in the clockwise direction and later in the anticlockwise direction.
keep turining your head to both the directions.
The tingling could be due to a nerve compression which would be rectified now or due to vit B12 deficiency.
3. Use a semisoft pillow with neck support.
Follow these measures it will improve gradually.
ok.. I will start.. I raised my monitor hieght :)
