This is Dr. David

you most likely have a pinched nerve in your neck causing pain in your neck and numbness down one side of your arms and numbness in your arm pits.

you need to ask your GP for an MRI scan fo your cervical spine to check for pinched nerves and herniated disks in your neck putting pressure on your neck spine.

numbness means nerves are being squeezed and pressed on and longer pressure on nerves can cause permanent nerve damage

ask for an MRI scan of your neck cervical spine as soon as possible

let me know if you have questions.
