Brief Answer: Thank you for posting your query. Detailed Answer: Hi, Based on the symptoms, it seems that there is compression of nerves in the neck due to bulging of discs. This can be confirmed by doing an MRI scan of the cervical spine. You can consult a neurologist for evaluation and opinion regarding treatment. I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information. Best wishes, Dr Sudhir Kumar MD (Internal Medicine), DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad,
