In brief: very unusual

They are likely related to a similar cause.
The potential list of causes can range from; poor postural mechanics, nerve root dysfunction from the neck region, muscular dystrophy and even some types of arthritis. It really warrants an evaluation from a specialist if you have not seen one yet.
