Hi,Welcome to Health care magic forum.
It appears to be the cervical spondylosis,pressure on the nerves, and the resulting pain.The leg numbness may be due to the general neuralgia.
I advise you to consult an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. You may need to have M.R.I. for diagnosis.
I usually prescribe to my patient with such symptoms neurotropic injections for 10 consecutive days,and then periodically till the pain is under the control.
You may need to have ofloxacin, acyclofenac and paracetamol.
Avoid taking potato, other tubers, tomato, egg, chicken, and sea foods till the pains are completely controlled.

Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
