Hello,

The current symptoms are not related to gastric cancer or its treatment. The most likely cause could be pinched nerves in the neck region. MRI scans will help in confirming the diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist
