You have to undergo a detailed examination and a bunch of X-Ray and CT scan of the spine. Based on these reports the further treatment would be decided. The treatment may include medical painkillers, cervical collar, physiotherapy, and or surgical treatment..

YOu need a neurology opinion. And a nerve study for the arm nerves. It can also happen if your work station is not good and causing strain.
