Arthritis with nerve compression

Detailed Answer:
Hi there

Thanks for the query

You seem to be suffering from nerve compression in the spine in the neck and lower back.

You need to get xrays of the cervical spine and lumbosacral spine to confirm.

Take Tablet Pregabalin 75mg at night for a month for relief. Avoid using thick pillow and bending forwards.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
