Hi Ms XXXXXXX

Thank you for posting your query.

It is unfortunate that you have not improved despite treatment at a good hospital.

We need to know the exact reason for your neck pain. The most common reason is cervical spondylosis and cervical disc disease. If you have an MRI report of cervical spine, please upload it.

As of now, you would benefit from physiotherapy and neck exercises.

Medications such as pregabalin or gabapentin are also useful.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist

Hi XXXXXXX Ji,

Thank you for getting back with reports.
I could not find the MRI reports, probably it was not done.
Please follow the treatment advice which I suggested earlier.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
