I’ve had this since November

Sometimes this could be referred pain form the cervical spine area. This is called cervical spondylosis.  This can also impact in the nerves exiting the cervical spine and cause pain down the arm.

Okay thanks. Also Since my symptoms started, my upper teeth (both sides) have been hurting/aching

Not sure if this is all connected
Expert:  ravikumarr replied 12 days ago.

This can also be referred pain from a tooth problem. Have you any dental carries.  Also referred pain can come from any ear infection.all these are possibilities.

A face to face examination is essential. Nothing can replace a direct physical examination. Have you had seen your gp for these problems?
