In brief: Pinched nerve

At your age neck pain that runs down the arm with or without spasms and heaviness sounds like a pinched nerve in the neck.
This is usually caused by a protruding disc or bone spur touching one of your spinal nerves as it leaves your neck. This can often improve on it's own with rest and anti-inflammatories, but if your pain lasts greater than one week or gets worse see your physician.
