Hello,

Your symptoms could be suggestive of a bulging disc in the cervical vertebral column or peripheral neuropathy. For this reason, I recommend performing a cervical spine X-ray study or MRI. Nerve conduction studies may be needed, coupled with other blood lab tests (complete blood count, vitamin B12 plasma levels, thyroid hormone levels).

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
