In brief: Nerve
You sound like you are describing nerve symptoms in the arm from a pinched nerve in the neck.
This numbness and weakness will start in the arm and travel down to the hand. You should see your family md for an evaluation. It could be carpal tunnel syndrome but that should not cause arm weakness.
