Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I have studied your case.
Due to compression of cervical nerve root there can be cramping in your hand.
MRI cervical spine will help in diagnosis

For these symptoms analgesic and neurotropic medication like pregabalin can be started consulting your doctor.
Till time, avoid lifting weights, Sit with support to neck. You can consult physiotherapist for help.
Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give quick relief.
I will advise to check your vit D3 level.
Continue injection B12.

If nerve compression becomes symptomatically severe then surgical decompression will give permanent relief.
