Brief Answer:
Pinched nerve may be the cause

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for posting
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. The symptoms described by you are suggestive of pinched nerve in the cervical spine. To confirm that MRI is the best investigation along with physical examination.
My suggestion for the time being are-
1. Wear soft cervical collar and avoid excessive neck movement and manipulation
2. May have drugs like Ibuprofen along with muscle relaxant Thiocolchicoside and pregablin.The last two drugs are prescription only.

Hope this suffices and I shall be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
