My mother has the same condition, she has been told that there is no cure available - just pain management. Surgery will never be an option for her. We have tried all the medications and she is still in chronic pain, is there any help or advice that anyone could offer?

Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Rajesh Lakhanpaul's  Response
The numbness most probably is the result of pressure exerted by disc bulge of any inflammatory locus. In ayurveda we try to relieve these symptoms with administration of punarnava guggul and agni tundi vati 1 bd with hot water. There is a procedure called greeva vasti which offers good relief, due to medicated oils that we fill in this procedure.
