In brief: Clarify your problem

Although you may have some issue with nerve compression in neck, it is conceivable that you have more peripheral nerve compression instead.
An EMG test can pinpoint and exclude different causes, and, in your case, should be very helpful.

In brief: Needs Eval

Pains such as this are sometimes difficult to sort out between originating in the neck and from shoulder pathology.
You need a thorough review of your history as well as physical examination by a neurologist and an orthopedist. Relying exclusively on imaging can sometimes be misleading and needs to be supplemented by a competent physical examination.
