Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you might be having cervical spondylosis.
It can result in neck pain along with numbness or pain in your hands.

You should get yourself clinically examined by an Orthopedic surgeon and a Neuro physician.

Following investigations will be helpful :-
1. CT/MRI of neck.
2. X-Ray cervical spine.

You can take painkillers like Ibuprofen twice daily after meals along with an antacid like Omeprazole 40 mg once daily before meals.

Physiotherapy is useful in such cases.

I hope this is helpful to you.
