See neurologist: Tingling suggests nerve disease. The neck burning may be significant, or a red herring. It may be too simplistic to think of cervical cord compression, but it should be considered. This case deserves to be evaluated by a PMR doc or neurologist to perform history, exam, run an EMG/NCS (study of nerve and muscle) and order x rays of your neck. Good,luck
