You have developed radical it is which is pain and numbness. Tingling etc. Due to pressure in the spinal region at your neck area. Reasons may be many. But spondylosis of cervical spine is what you may be suffering from. To establish the diagnosis you need to do an mri of the cervical spine and show the report to an orthopaedic surgeon if it is established to be due to spondylotic nerve compression. A course of physiotherapy like cervical traction will help. Depending on the diagnosis you may need to consult a neurologist as well. There are certain habits you have to change like do not use thick pillow under the head while sleeping. Etc.

Yes of course this is neuro problem. Avoid driving. Don't put pillow under your head while sleeping. This may be due to compression of nerves or may be due to cervical spondylitis. You can take this rhus tox 200/od&kalmia lat 30/qid.
