While : While cervical (neck bone) compression fractures are rare in the absence of trauma, its quite possible you have a degenerative condition causing your symptoms. Disc bulging, herniations, and arthritis are just a few conditions that are commonly a source of nerve root irritation in the neck that can cause neck/shoulder pain that travels down the arm. Most of the time it can be treated successfully with nsaid's, pt, activity modification, etc. Less commonly it requires some more invasive intervention (injections or surgery). A visit to your pcp (or orthopedist if you have one) would be in your best interest. Good luck!
