Thank you for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com.
I can understand the discomfort you are undergoing on account of your symptoms.
I have noted the thorough evaluation done so far, however, I would like an MRI of the lumbo-sacral spine (with screening of the whole spine) to be done for you. This is because your symptoms could occur due to disc prolapse with compression of the nerves in the back.
In addition, I would also like you to get evaluated by a gastroenterologist (in view of symptoms such as constipation, poor appetite, nausea, stomach pain, etc). Further evaluation may require endoscopy, colonoscopy, CT abdomen, etc, from the gastroenterology side.
Neuropathic pain may respond to pregabalin or gabapentin capsules, in the time being, till evaluation is completed.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Thank you so much. I have competed in Figure Bodybuilding for the past 6 years but have had a break for 2 years.. I know I have added spme weight to my frame, I never frequent a doctor at all. But this concernrd me due wanting yo be able to walk and compete again next year.
So a pro lapsed disc, the burning pain and minmal movement in my neck could be caused by this also.
Thank you for getting back.
It is good to note that you are healthy and rarely visit a doctor. I hope you will get back your complete health again.
Yes, a prolapsed disc in the neck can cause neck and back pain, burning in the arms, and limited neck movements.
Lack of physical activity in the past two years would have compounded your problems.
