Thanks for posting your query.
The symptoms you are having are likely to be due to a nerve root compression or irritation. It can be caused by cervical spondylosis or vitamin B 12 deficiency or an electrolyte imbalance.
You need to consult a neurologist to find out the exact cause and then get the treatment accordingly.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
