In brief: Pinched nerve

Neck pain that runs down the arm or shoulder with or without numbness and tingling 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.

In brief: Pinched nerve

Burning-type pain is often nerve pain, from disk or bone spur in your neck.
Any weakness or numbness in your arm or hand? Does tilting your head forward or backward, side-to-side or placing it in a specific position seem to aggravate it?Try an anti-inflammatory like Aspirin or ibuprofen, ice the neck and avoid any heavy lifting or straining for a couple of days. If no better, then see md.
