In brief: Neck problem
One of the things that may be causing this is a disc problem in your neck in this particular situation the disc between c5-6 or c6-7 may be to blame.
A disc issue here typically results in neck pain/stiffness, and radiating pain in the arm accompanied often by numbness. See your doctor.
