Mostly in your age people suffer from degenerative disease. also those who work for prolonged hours in front of the computers have same complaints with almost same presentatation. but in your case since you have weakness (motor problem), it cannot be taken as only degenerative disease but there may be severe cord compression. Also look for the canal diameter. if it is more than 1.0 cm it is normal. it needs only conservative management.

You may go through Homoeopathic treatment. Degenrative changes in your spines cause nerve compression, which causes pain. Try Conim mac 30 and Causticum 30 - 2 drops each thrice daily.
