Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The symptoms you are having are likely to be due to a nerve root compression or irritation. It can be caused by cervical spondylosis or vitamin B 12 deficiency or an electrolyte imbalance.
You need to consult a neurologist to find out the exact cause and then get the treatment accordingly.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
