In brief: Possibly

Without further info ie location of ur symptoms duration onset etc it is difficult to know.
Ur symptoms would also suggest u be seen by ur physician or a specialist of his choice to determine if u would require an MRI of the affected area. Epidural steroid injections can be very helpful under the right circumstances with the type of pain u describe but would need to determine reason for ur symptom.

In brief: Cervical epidural

This is exactly what a cervical epidural steroid injection is great for. These symptoms sound like classic cervical radiculopathy.
Please just see a board-certified spine/pain specialist to make sure this is just a disc herniation or bony spur pinching a nerve, and not a tumor or an immediate surgical need.
