Hello Bruce,

The symptoms are indicative of nerve compression in the neck region.
As a result of which, the pain is getting radiated to the areas supplied by it.

Symptomatic relief will be obtained by intake of Nervigenic agents like Vit B6, Vit B12 & Folic acid. Also multivitamin & multimineral supplements including iron, calcium & Vit D needs to be added in your diet.

Physiotherapy exercises will be helpful.
Also take care of your sleeping posture.
Avoid use of thick pillows which puts strain on neck muscles.

If symptoms still persist, kindly visit a Neurologist for proper clinical examination including nerve conduction studies.
Wishing you a Good Health.
Take care.
