As such your symptoms suggest the possibility of pinched nerve in the neck. ( Cervical Spondylosis)
Cervical Spondylosis is caused by any condition that puts pressure on the nerves where they leave the spinal column.
These nerves after passing from neck come to armpit as brachial plexus and then radiating to arms and fingers.
Any sort of pressure in pathways of nerves can result in radiating pain,tingling sensation in arms and hands ,fingers.
So you should undergo an MRI/X-Ray examination of the cervical spine ( AP and lateral views),Nerve conduction test ,EMG for further evaluation
Take proper rest.
You should go for physical therapy
for pain management.
Take OTC Motrin .
Do gentle massage with muscle relaxant ointment and apply warm compresses .
Even EKG should be done as a precautionary measure .
So i suggest you to consultyour regular doctor for a clinical examination and as per required your doctor may refer you to either an Orthopedist or Neurologist for further evaluation and management.
If pain is severe then visit ER
I hope this helps.
