Go see your doc: Even though you don't have numbness, you need to see a neurologist. Weakness is not a good sign. Possibilities include a stroke, carpal tunnel syndrome, cervical disc at c7....Go see your doc.

See Neurologist: Not normal, particularly if worsening. Need evaluation by neurologist asap.
