As per your history, it may be due to nerve compression.

For further assessment, I would suggest you do MRI neck, nerve conduction studies after consultation.

Till then you can take tablet acetaminophen. You may require tablet gabapentin after consultation. Do regular physical therapy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
