thank you for your question.
it looks like the problem' origin is in the neck.
Depending on you age and past history this may be from diferent causes.
If you are old age it may be from spondyloarthrosis or arthritis which is degeneration of spine from age.
It may he an herniated disc of the neck ( cervical spine ) that compres the nerves. This may be the cause if you had any trauma or fall in the past.
I think you should see a neurology specialist and he will order for uou neck MRI , xrays or CT scans and other examinations.
Hope this advise will help you.
I find this answer helpful
