Welcome to XXXXXXX
You have cervical spondylosis. It seems you have symptoms.Do you have tingling and numbness in hands? feeling of imbalance while walking? any trouble with urination? do you have constant arm pain?
Please upload the MRI images and report if possible.
Regarding the low back pain, is there any changes in the disc in lumbar spine?Usually medicine with physiotherapy helps to resolve the pain. I doubt about the homeopathy treatment however I am not the expert person in that field to comment on that.
Please get back with above information to diagnose the problem. Thanks.

The symptoms are occasional. I would suggest to consult a spine specialist and get a thorough examination to rule out cervical myelopathy. In case of myelopathy homeopathy treatment may not help.
For pain relief please consider physiotherapy for low back and neck. It should help. Thanks.

sir,
today i consulted with a neurologist.he examined the MRI scan result and said nothing serious and prescribed following medicines and soft neck collar:
Tab Wysolone 5 (1-1-1 for 5 days & 1-0-1 for next 5 days)
Tab Zerodol TH 4 (1-0-1 for 5 days)
Tab Gastrosec-DSR(DRDO) (1 OD before meal)
Tab Zantrol-PG (0-0-1 for 5 days & 1-0-1 for the next 5 days)
He said after this 10 days dosage if it is not getting OK he will go for some other test,like scan of skull or something.Would u pls give yr opinion.
