If the disk is pressing on a nerve root, other symptoms can include: numbness/tingling in a shoulder/arm that may go down to your fingers or weakness in a arm/hand.
If it presses on your spinal cord, you can have more serious symptoms, including: stumbling/awkward walking, tingling or a shock-like feeling running down your body into your legs, problems using your hands/arms for fine motor skills, loss of balance & coordination.
It can be hard to figure out exactly what causes a herniated cervical disk. It often comes on slowly w/ no clear cause. But sometimes the reason can be narrowed down to: age, genetics, movement or sudden strain.
