Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms you have described are likely to be due to a nerve compression in the area.
Sometimes local soft tissue swelling also produces such changes. An MRI of the neck will help in finding out the exact cause. Oral methylcobalamin supplements will help in symptomatic relief.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
