Hello, I have studied your case. For these symptoms analgesic and neurotropic medication [methylcobalamine and pregabalin] can be started consulting your doctor. Till time, avoid lifting weights. You can consult physiotherapist for help. Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give you relief. Traction may or may not help. I will advise to check your vit B12 and vit D3 level. There can be age related osteoporosis so you can start calcium and vit D supplement and diet rich in same. You need to use cervical collar. 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.
