Hello!

Welcome on Healthcaremagic!

I read carefully your question and understand your concern.
Your symptoms are indicative of a possible bulging disc in the cervical vertebral column, which may cause compression to the spine and the spinal nerve roots originating in this region.
For this reason, I recommend performing a cervical spine MRI study to examine better the region.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!
Best wishes, Dr. Aida
