OBGYN 's  Response

Cervical spondylitis can cause dizziness , pain and stiffness in the neck and arms but urinary incontinence can be due to other reasons

As he is having swelling in leg and arm you should not delay in consulting an orthopedic surgeon who will do certain tests like routine blood sugar and X rays as well as CT scan of spine

It is better to consult a neurophysician as well

take care
