Brief Answer:
MRI cervical spine

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Thanks for being in follow-up and providing further details.

In view of your clinical details,you are possibly having cervical spine degenerative changes(cervical spondylosis) with mild radiculopathy.

Please get a MRI of cervical spine done,in order to screen for the same.

Meanwhile,I am of the opinion that you should start taking Pregabalin(75 mg once a day) along with meganeuron.


ALL MEDICINES SHOULD BE TAKEN UNDER A PHYSICIAN'S GUIDANCE.

Hope that helps.If you have any further questions,I shall be glad to answer them.
