In brief: Yes

Your symptoms may represent what we call radiculopathy.
This occurs as a result of your nerves being pinched as they exit the spine by your protruding disc and osteophytes. You may benefit from an injection of steroid into the area of pressure of the nerve which may help your symptoms. Consult a physiatrist or spine specialist.

In brief: Thanks for asking!

Most likely symptoms are coming from cervical radiculopathies.
.. Swelling and cold sensation are more autonomic but may be part of it.
