In brief: Pain

Any moderate to severe pain impairs sleep.
Evaluate the cause for the bone pain and treat it.

Any acute bone pain that bad should be evaluated by your family doctor with Neurologic orthopedic or rheumatologic follow-up As indicated.

In brief: Nerve pressure

Symptoms could be due to degenerative disease of the neck with pressure on the nerves.
Carpal tunnel syndrome would be a remote consideration although symptoms not typical. If any numbness or tingling is present this would be consistent with nerve impingement.
