Hi Vikas,

The symptoms that you have described can be due to cervical spondylosis, which affects the nerves passing near the cervical spine. Your ECG and TMT have come out to be normal, so it appears that your heart is fine. But alcohol may be contributing to your problems. Since you have been drinking regularly for 5 years, it is possible that you have developed alcohol induced neuropathy, which is being aggravated by cervical spondylosis. Add vitamins to your diet and consider quitting alcohol, but under medical supervision.

Hope this helps. Best wishes.
