Suggest treatment for pain in my back, neck, armpit and leg inspite of working long hours with the computer

My Name is Krishna and I am working as a Computer Engineer in India since 2003. I have been working long hours with the computer all these years. For the past one year I have been experiencing pain in my neck, left back , below the left arm pit, and the left leg.I some times feel stabbing pain in the chest on the left side. Recently I had an MRI for Cervical Spine...These are the findings of MRI.... Findings: Mild Cervical Spine Scoliosis seen with concavity to left. Cervical lordosis is obliterated - Suggesting muscle spasm. The Cervical vertebrae show normal alignment and marrow signal intensity pattern. Mildline AP canal diameters measures as follows: C2 18 mm C2/C3 12 mm C3 13 mm C3/C4 12 mm C4 12 mm C4/C5 12 mm C5 13 mm C5/C6 12 mm C6 14 mm C6/C7 12 mm C7 14 mm C4/C5 and C5/C6 Small anterior osteophytes seen. Impression : MILD CERVICAL SPINE SCOLIOSIS WITH CONCAVITY TO LEFT CERVICAL LORDOSIS OBLITERATION - SUGGESTING MUSCLE SPASM C4/C5 TO C5/C6 SMALL ANTERIOR OSTEOPHYTES C4/C5 TO C5/C6 DISCS SMALL POSTERO CENTRAL AND LEFT PARA CENTRAL BROAD NUCLEUS PULPOSUS PROTRUSIONS MILDLY COMPRESSING THECAL SAC AND MILDLY INDENTING LEFT EXITING NERVE ROOTS... I ve consulted a Ortho surgeon, He told me that nothing to worry too much and he has advised me to take some medicines.But my worry is that the pain is so much and it has been aggravating every day. Please let me know the remedies ? Is it curable or not ? and how serious is this in future ? What are the medications that I should take? I would be grateful if you could advise me about the treatmen

Hi I have gone though your description and your MRI report. In my opinion, as you are suffering from PIVD C4-5 , C5-6 (L) sided , all your symptoms are explained except leg symptoms. In my practice I would advice painkillers muscle relaxants ,physiotherapy and Isometric Neck Exercises for 10-15 days following which I will go only for Exercises and postural adjustments as long term solution.
