Neck pain may:
- Spread to the upper back, shoulders, or arms.
- Be worse with movement.
- Make your neck stiff or tender.
- Cause headaches. These are common and may last for months.
- Numbness, tingling, or weakness in your arm or hand.
- A burning feeling when you are touched on the skin of the arm or hand.
- A pain that feels like a shock and extends into your arm or hand.
- Leg numbness or weakness, and loss of the ability to control urination (bladder control) or bowel movements. This can occur when there is pressure on or injury to the spinal cord.
