Weakness in both arms with shortness of breath

Hi, I ve been having a sensation of weakness in both arms, usually in the afternoon that is accompanied by a very full feeling in my neck, almost to the point of shortness of breath . I have become rather sedentary in retirement and wonder if this is maybe the cause? Thanks for your input.

Good Day
You need to rule out Cervical spondylosis which can cause similar symptoms. Is there any tingling or numbness in the hands. You may visit the Orthopaedician and get examined along with an X-ray as required. Physiotherapy and pain killers is usually indicated if the spondylosis isn't severe.
