Pinched nerve - neck: Sounds like you have a pinched nerve in your neck and you need to get an MRI of the c-spine. Depending on the results it might be just short term that gets better spontaneously, or somthing that might need an epidural steroid injection or something that might require surgery. Good news is that most resolve on it's own.
