I am sorry you are in pain

you should see a doctor

it sounds like you need to get a neck spine MRI scan to look for pinched nerves.

numb tongue on the right side can be due to a viral infection or allergic reaction possibly

you may need a course of steroids to see if that helps

you may need an MRI scan of the brain as well to check the brain and upper neck.

if you have a slipped disk in your neck, you may need a steroid injection in the area to decrease inflammation and pain

you may need physical therapy and neck stretching exercises which could help

let me know if you have questions.
