Neck pain: Neck pain associated with radiation to left small finger is associated with a C8 problem. So likely some type of impingement associated with nerve being irritated at that vertebrae. Other possibilities include irritation to nerves of brachial plexus which come down your neck and irritation of nerve at shoulder.
