Pain that you are describing seems to be nerve related, however can be confirmed only after clinical examination. Screening mri is not very helpful if the compression is not in Center of spinal canal. Get a dedicated mri of cervical spine done.
Next Steps
Isometric neck exercises Walking as per tolerable limit and gradually increase to 4 km in one go. Analgesic that suits you Add Pregabid 75 at night ( may cause drowsiness in some ) TENS therapy Hot fomenting

Have to see whether shoulder or neck is the main source of pain. If all investigations are normal , then I would advice you to get a consultation with ortho doctor to get examined to know source of pain and it’s radiation.
