Dear Hady

The numbness which you describe could be due to cervical disc pressing on one the nerve roots as they exit from the spinal cord. If you don't have any other symptoms and the problem is not progressive I suggest you get proper advice for physiotherapy as that is the one which can help you.

You must understand that if this is because of disc problem then it is mechanical problem and none of the tablets are going to help you for that.
