Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to us.
The problem that you have is not an uncommon problem at age of 30. You must understand that humans evolved from quadrapeds(four footed animals). Unfortunately in this evolution to bipedal gait no extra strength to spine came. As a consequence human spine starts degenerating from an early age of 20. Put in simpler words, spine ages much earlier than rest of human body due to bipedal gait. It is a famous saying ``degenerative disorders of spine is actually a price paid by human race for walking erect``. Beyond age of 30 ,it is rare to find a human spine that shows no signs of degeneration.
So therefore, you must sit with spine supported and strictly avoid bending forward. You may do neck and back extension exercises to strengthen the these muscles.
I hope I have clarified your concerns. Let me know if you have any more questions
Regards

I am 51 years old male. one year back one day I suffered at my work place a moment of giddiness with a little loss of memory like forgetting the day and it s date and computer password etc. After 15 minutes of taking an antacid it came to normal. After that through investigations I was diagnosed with gall stone and spondilytes. I took medicines but not of much help. Now I feel pain in the neck muscles and with a little giddiness. Is it really a mere spondilytes or any thing related to nerve or brain ?

my 12 yr old daughter Alexis has had severe back pain, leg pain, neck pain, fatigue, shortness of breath and generally just feeling unwell for 2 months. All blood tests came back normal except for 2 Lyme titers which came back positive. However the dr feels this is a false positive and wants to run another test in 3 months. He doesn t want to start her on antibiotics.

I have a pins & needles feeling deep into my left armpit that radiates down the inside of my arm to my elbow, several times during the day. Occasionally while this is happening, i will also have burning pain in the same shoulder - rotator cuff area radiating down the outside of the arm to the elbow. When this happens suddenly and is intense it scares me into thinking I may be having a heart attack, but I don't have any other symptoms, no shortness of breath, no heavyness, no sweats, otherwise I am a healthy 51 year old female. I thought it could be a pinched nerve, but would it come on so suddenly, last for about 15 mins, then subside. This first happened 6 months ago and then again 2 weeks ago. I don't have any neck pain when this happens. Can you have a pinched nerve w/o neck pain?
