Hello Dr. This is Rahul. I am a software engineer and used to drive almost 120 kms (to and fro) in day for work. Last week I felt little numbness in my left arm with stiffness in neck so visited Dr. and she advised for MRI . The report says that POSTERIOR PROTRUDED C4-5 AND C5-6 DISCS ARE NOTED SHOWING PRESSURE EFFECT ON THE THECAL SAC .” Dr. said this is mild and advised me some neck exercise, brisk walking for 30 minutes and Vit B1,B6,B12 capsules 3 times in a day. I d be greatful to you if you can advise me regarding this. Best Regards Rahul

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The investigation and advice are appropriate.
Neck exercise helps now. Advice on posture is important in the long term
There is no mention of your age. Was an ECG done?

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
