Thanks for this question

This is very serious

you could have a fracture or a disc in the neck that is pressing on a nerve

when a nerve in the spine or coming out of the spine is pinched, it causes these symptoms in the arm

you need to go to ER and have an MRI of the spine.

let me know if you have other questions.
