It is possible that you have a disc herniation or a disc bulge in the neck . Best to get this evaluated asap and get x-rays (probably you will need an mri). Cervical radiculopathy symptoms involve weakness of the muscles, shooting pains into the extremity, absence or assymetry of reflexes- and depending on the level that is affected, you will have different symptoms. Furthermore, neck pain can result that includes stiffness, loss of range of motion and muscle spasms. - NJ
