Probably "degenerative". But dont let that scare you - everyone's bones degenerate as they age. The tricky part is separating normal bone and joint changes from those that are abnormal.

Could have been genetic. Just might have been the way your spine was all along, or something that happened over time (or both). Maybe you got hurt some time while playing sports or had a hard fall and over time its stressed your spine.

Did your doc prescribe Physical Therapy at all? I have read that it can be extremely helpful to many people.

You also might want to do a followup and find out why your arm hurts all the time. It might not be your neck at all causing your arm pain..
