Brief Answer:
Possible pinched nerve.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HealthcareMagic.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Symptoms you describe are most likely caused by pinched nerve(s) in your cervical spine.

Conditions that may cause such issues include arthritis of the spine, degenerative discs disease, herniated disc disease etc.

Neurological evaluation and imaging studies are necessary to get a correct understanding of your condition.

Treatment initially includes NSAID drugs and Antineuralgic drugs use, physical therapy and epidural injections.

Please discuss with your Doctor about getting evaluated further and treated about these issues.

Hope you found the answer helpful. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
