Brief Answer:
You may take Gabapentin tablet.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.
I understand your concerns.

Your symptoms look like the features of nerve compression. You may take pain killers and if need be, tablet gabapentin, for this numbness. It is a stronger pain killer for neuropathies. Your doctor will know the doses.

Also an X-ray cervical spine may help in diagnosis of any pathology there. Thus I would recommend that you see an orthopedic surgeon and get appropriate investigations done including vit B12 levels in blood.

Hope this will help you.
Regards.
