Neurologist 's  Response
The neck pain which is radiating down your arm is suggestive of compression of nerves in your neck region. The tingling sensation near ear and jaw area could also be related to nerve compression. However you have developed these things over a relatively short period of time. Shaking of arms and more so of legs is an real concern. You should get yourself evaluated by a neurologist as soon as possible. MRI scan of the neck region will be required.
Good luck.
