Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query

I'm Dr Sudhir Kumar

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. It is likely to be compression in some of nerves in neck. Its cause can be cervical disc prolapse or muscular which can be deferentiated by MRI of cervical spine.

I will suggest you try analgesic such as ibuprofen and neurotrophic such as Mecobalamine. Both these drugs are available over the counter in most places. If symptoms don't resolve in a week or if you develop pain, you should consider MRI scan as discussed above.

Hope your query get answered. If you have any clarification then I will be happy to help you.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
