the most common cause of pain in neck is the problem with cervical spine and in young people it is invariably because of bad posture. it is hard to accept but it is the truth, unless the posture is corrected the neck keeps hurting. you need to consult orthopaedician or neurosurgeon and get an MRI done for the spine to know what exactly has happened in the neck to cause you the pain.

First get yourself an MRI of Cervical Spine done.In your case botox will be helpful mainly if you r having stiffness of neck. One injection of botox will cost you more than Rs.15000.Avoid bending your nck forwards an always apply a cervical collar.Probably there is some amount of negligence on your part.

Doctor, I, 65 years male, am having cervical spondylitis and lower back pain for past 30 years and osteo arthriitis ofboth knees. I didnt take much medication though I have constant neck pain and knee pain. I used to experience giddiness at times. However, I was able to walk faster, and climb stairs. while coming down the steps I have difficulty. Of late, I hav started having problems keeping my balalnce while walking. I kind of sway and have the fear of falling. Some times I have no problem while walking. I have been asked by a neuro surgeon, to do MRI of sipne. Meanwhile, he has prescribed Doloneuron 100 and Tolperitas 150 tablets for 10 days. Klndly advise whether this will help in improving my gait. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Jairaj Kamthan

I am a 150 lb. 50 yr. old woman with no previous gastro concerns, no daily meds, a daily antioxidant supplement with a multivite w/iron, daily diet with variety of fruits & veggies, milk, yogurt, chicken, fish, beef, whole grains, & beans with very little processed food, no food allergies. Lifelong exerciser, presently in pool 2x - 3x a week, but sedentary lifestyle past decade due to spinal injuries. Developed bouts of severe abdominal pain and GI distress with heartburn & reflux this year. Suspected two pain meds used occasionally for chronic back and neck pain (Percocet & Fiorinal) but discovered each time I eat pistachios, even just 10 or 12, I get the same horrible GI distress. No itching or hives or other allergic-type symptoms. Is this considered an allergy? Is there a name for it, the way that gluten intolerance is called Celiac Sprue Disease or wheat allergy ???

I am 51 years old male. one year back one day I suffered at my work place a moment of giddiness with a little loss of memory like forgetting the day and it s date and computer password etc. After 15 minutes of taking an antacid it came to normal. After that through investigations I was diagnosed with gall stone and spondilytes. I took medicines but not of much help. Now I feel pain in the neck muscles and with a little giddiness. Is it really a mere spondilytes or any thing related to nerve or brain ?
