What is the cause of a stiff neck?

I have a stiff neck, have a hard time turning it to the right side, almost feels hung up. Sometimes it is very painful and I feel tingling down my right arm if I turn it too far. If I press on my neck at the very top, right near my head, I can feel hard areas that I press and I could scream. What do you think?

from history it seems that you might be having some degenerative changes in your cervical spines giving rise this problem.
There might be having some osteophytes formation giving this problem as well.
Go for x-ray cervical spines.
Ok and take care.
