Yes,you have a trigger finger, which is caused by narrowing of the sheath that the tendon for that finger passes through. The narrowing of the sheath can be due to inflammation or from injury to the tendon.

This inflammation causes the tendon to be unable to move smoothly and the finger catches and gets stuck in the bent position.

Neck pain can be associated with cervical spondylosis.

The treatment may include Motrin,massage on back of neck,soak in warm water for 5-10 minutes, finger exercises to try to keep it moving fluidly, and usually steroid injections.

So see an Orthopedist for further evaluation and management.

Hope this helps.
