Could be!: Cervical neuropathy which is compression of a nerve root in the neck as it exits from the spinal cord through the neural foramen of the spine in the neck, usually from an arthritic spur or herniated disk, often causes paresthesia (tingling) and anesthesia (numbness) as well as, potentially, pain that can, depending on which is involved, go down the shoulder, neck, chest, back, and/or arm.
