Thanks for asking for asking in Healthcare Magic.
Your symptoms of neck pain, arm pain, shoulder blade and chest pain, parasthesia or altered sensation ranging from numbness to sharp pains could be due to cervical radicolopathy at c5, c6 level. It means compression of nerve in the spine that results in neurological symptoms along the course of the affected nerve. This can occur without any evidence of spinal dysfunction. Muscle spasm at that level is the reason for neck pain.
Although you say the pain is more near the junction of neck and head (c2), your symptoms are suggestive of compression at c5 ,c6 level. Compression at c2 level will cause only neck pain and jaw pain whereas, compression above c5, c6 level results in pain near ear, neck and in the area around shoulder blade and not in hands.
MRI and CT of cervical spine will confirm the diagnosis. You should consult an Orthopedician for confirmation of diagnosis and further course of management. Drugs like Gabapentin are effective in controlling neuropathic pain. Analgesics like Ibuprofen will help in neck pain Physiotherapy will give additional benefit.
