Thank you for posting your query.
I can understand your anxiety and concern, on account of your symptoms.
In order to understand your problems better, I would like to have a copy of your MRI report, which can be uploaded on this website.
Treatment of pinched nerves consists of the following:

1. Medications such as pregabalin or gabapentin,
2. Physiotherapy, including IFT, ultrasound, neck and back extension exercises, etc.
3. Nerve blocks and epidural injections,
4. Surgery.

Once I have seen your reports, then, I can advise you about the correct treatment as well as the best doctors.
I am sure you would do well.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
