Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You are suffering from cervical disc prolapse and radiculitis that means there is involvement of some of the nerve roots that arise from your neck.
  • What is the duration of your problem and what is your job?
  • Your condition might need evaluation with x-ray of the cervical spine followed by medications.
  • If the pain does not improve with medications you might have to be on cervical traction or use a soft cervical collar to decrease the spasm and improve the pain.
  • Kindly get back with the answers for the questions and your latest status of the pain so I could advise you medications accordingly.
