Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms that you have are due to gradually increasing degenerative changes in the spine. If the symptoms are gradually increasing then surgical treatment needs to be considered.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
