Cervical spine?: There are multiple possible causes. A common cause is an irritated nerve in the neck or cervical spine. Other possible causes include a shoulder problem, brachial plexus injury, and referred pain from an internal medical problem. If the symptoms persist or are associated with other symptoms, consult a physician.
