Time to see your doc: At 60 years old, one typical condition to cause your symptoms would be cervical spine osteoarthritis/spondylosis. This can include disc bulging, arthritis of facet joints, narrowing of the nerve canals due to bony overgrowth/bone spurs. This often can be successfully treated with a variety of measures including medications, pt, injections, etc. Of course, there could be several other causes.
