Now the current problem am suffering is tingling sensation (while sweeping ,mopping, cooking etc in some positions) in my right hand(starting from wrist upto fingers) & severe pinning pain sometimes in left side of the neck ,wrist,hands,legs etc.I started taking Homeopathy medicines since three months so i was suggested by the doctor for an x-ray..The Findings of the X-ray are below.. LOSS OF CERVICAL LORDOSIS due to muscle spasm Anterior oestophytes noted in lower cervical vertebra Inhomogenous opacity in Soft tissues of neck-Likely artifact.

I have studied your case with diligence.

As per your symptom and history there is possibility of acute muscle spasm in neck or there can be cervical disc compression.
Due to compression of this nerve root there is pain associated with it.

For these symptoms muscle relaxant with analgesic and neurotropic medication can be started consulting your treating doctor.
Till time take rest and continue analgesic available over the counter take rest, and hot fomentation.
Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give quick relief.
You may need to do MRI cervical spine if symptoms persist.
I will advise to check your vit B12 and vit D3 level.
Homeopathic medicine may take 6 to 9 months to show effects.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Take care.
