SOunds like a herniated disc in your neck.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
wouldn't i have some other symptom , stiff neck or reduced movement
Expert:  Dr Campen replied 7 years ago.
Not at all. The disc pressess on the nerve that goes down your arm. You may have no symptoms in your neck. You should try antiinflammatories like Advil, Motrin, or Ibuprofen. Good luck. Hope this helps.
