Hi Subhro,

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would urge you to stop smoking, as it is associated with multiple health hazards, including cancer, heart attack and brain stroke.
Your current symptoms are suggestive of a pinched nerve in the neck, which can cause neck pain, upper limb pain and tingling.
You would benefit from physiotherapy and neck extension exercises.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
