Hi ,it can be due to pressure on nerve or due to vit b complex deficiency.One more important cause is cervical , it is better to get an xray done under the supervision of an ortho.Start doing isometric exercises of the neck , take b complex supplements like methylcobalamine 500 micrograms daily , pyridoxine 10 mgm daily with folic acid 5 mgm daily , eat fish , egg , green leafy vegetables , take vitamin D also in the form of calcirol granules , one sachet per week + calcium rich diet.Hot fomentation also helps , it is better to go to physio , if required nerve conduction tests can also be done.
best wishes
