Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

The likeliest cause can be either disc herniation or collapse of the vertebra in the neck region.

MRI of the cervical (neck region) spine will come out with the real cause of your problems. If MRI is normal, nerve conduction velocity would be required.

You may discuss the entire case with your treating doctor, who knows what course of action is warranted.

Hope I have addressed your query to your satisfaction. Do not forget to rate the answer.

Wish you a speedy recovery and good health.
