How to treat herniated disc at C5 & C6?

I have herniated disc at C5 and C6. I have had arm pain and numbness for 2 years now, but just recently I began having this "lump in throat" feeling and some slight pain in my throat and around my neck. Could this be from my disc or something totally different?

Hello,

I had gone through the case and found that both are different. Herniation of disc found oly in vertebrae and lump in throat and around neck might be enlarged glands.

So must consult for lump to surgeon and go for proper investigation.

For cervical spondylitis do exercise and Avoid pillow and take mild painkiller if pain is severe.

Hope my answer will be effective for you.

Thanks
