Neurologist first : Without examining you, it is difficult to pinpoint the issue. The most likely cause is an issue with your nerves. It can be a primary nerve problem (neuropathy) or secondary to mechanical compression somewhere along your nerves. For example, a centrally herniated cervical (Neck) disc can cause your symptoms.
