Thank you posting the query.

Based on your symptoms, there is possibility of Disc Prolapse of Cervical spine resulting in Radiculopathy with weakness of hands muscles.

I would suggest you to get MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) of your cervical spine done at the earliest to know the exact cause of your symptoms.

Treatment would follow accordingly as per the cause.

I hope, I have answered your query.

I will be available for follow up queries if any.

yeah but it comes with abnormal joints clicking and tendons pain when i keep a cup of coffee or want open the door i feel pain in my tendons as well as i can hear clicking joints often any ideas can it be related to disc ?

Clicking of joints are not related to disc prolapse. Clicks are usually left alone unless they cause significant problem.

But the pain in the tendons could be as a result of cervical spine disc prolapse.
