Brief Answer:
Get MRI done.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

All this may be due compression of nerve in cervical spine or from brachial plexus.

So for exact diagnosis to be made get MRI of cervical spine and brachial plexus to see exact cause.

Although you are recovering, still get MRI done.

Till then have tab.pregabalin75mg+methylcobalamine750mcg at night by prescription of your family doctor.

Visit some physiotherapy centre.

I hope it helps.

Thanks,
