No good posture, red line moving up and down the spine. What could this be?

Hi, I have a weird red line that moves up and down my spine for some time now. When I initially went to the doctor he prescribed me some medicine for irritation, but that did not seem to work out. Since then I have not had time to book another appointment with the doctor. Any ideas? As a side note, though it may have no relation, I do not have the greatest posture and I am 53 years old. Thank you for your help!

thanks for your query on HCM
See this weired red line that moves up and down your spine for some time may be due to multiple sclerosis.
For that i think you should have a MRI of the spine to detect multiple sclerotic changes or some other degenrative changes.
MRI should be done for the evaluation of your problem. It is must. Alongside you should consult a neurosurgeon to get yourself locally examined.
thank you.
