Hello Doctor,
Thanks for response. Finally, I am suffering pain in all my joints like shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee and heel. I feel more pain in left side of those parts compared to right. I went to consult a doctor and he gave me some tablets for removing gas and pain killer, but it didn't work. Finally He suggested to take MRI scan of spine. He suggested go for operation later on seeing my MRI scan report due to disc bulge. I've uploaded the scan reports and a photo copy of the scan.
