Neurologist 's  Response
Thanks for the reply. I would like to know if there is excess accumulation of spinal fluid in the brain without any reason. Is it a Hydrocephalus. If so you require continuous spinal fluid drainage. If this is not the case we usually do not drain any fluid. read the CT report and type as it reads. Or scan the images and send it to me. Bye

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You are probably suffering from Cervical spondylosis. You need to visit a Neurologist who will examine you and get required investigations done. Avoid bad posture at work, sit up straight with good neck support. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and drink enough water. Exercise by brisk walking everyday for 40 minutes. Get enough sleep of 6-8 hours a day. Reduce stress by doing Yoga, Pranayam and deep breathing exercises. Also get vision tested for any vision problems which can add to this picture.
