Hi Anon

Thanks for writing to us and welcome! 

It sounds to be like you may have nerve damage - perhaps a trapped nerve that is causing this pain and numbness.

You may also have some kind of neck or spine injury. 

I think it's very important that you see a doctor.  Not because I think it's something very serious but because it could get even more painful and it may be something that you can get quick treatment for. 

Let us know how it goes!
