Hello,

I have studied your case.
Due to compression of nerve root there can be pins and needle with pain your arm.
I will advise you to MRI cervical spine for better diagnosis.

For these symptoms analgesic and neurotropic medication can be started.
Till time, avoid lifting weights, Sit with support to back. You can consult physiotherapist for help.
Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give quick relief.

Wishing you good health.

Take care
