Thanks for the question.

This is most probably because of a pinched nerve or muscle spasm.
Common cause is bulging intervertebral discs in the vertebral column that compress on the nerves as they come out of the spinal cord. Symptoms are experienced along the area of distribution/path of that particular nerve.

Conservative treatment include anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy or chiropractic treatment, and avoiding activity that strains the neck or back. The majority of patients respond well to this conservative treatment, and symptoms often improve within six weeks to three months.

I think you can try this treatment and if symptoms persist then you might have to see your doctor.
