Hi
Multiple neurological features presenting like this indicate that one should go for screening for cervical spondylitis.
It is nothing serious.
X - ray of cervical spines or MRI may help in diagnosis.
Few neck exercises and analgesics will help in treatment.
But opinion of neuro physician will be desired.
I find this answer helpful
