Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
If what you described is correct, you may have a compression on the nerves going to hands. This could happen anywhere from your spine to wrist. However because you have neck stiffness also it may be from your spine in the neck. See an orthopaedic surgeon. You may need an MRI scan. Pain along the arm and neck will settle even without any treatment in few days in majority !!
