Could be nerve root: Your description sounds like a cervical nerve root problem. Injury to the peripheral nerves exiting from your neck can cause pain, paresthesias (pins and needles), numbness, and/or weakness. You would benefit from a consultation with your doctor to delve into this issue further. Good luck to a quick recovery.
