Hi doctor,

I am a 39-year-old male suffering from neck pain and stiffness. I have consulted many doctors, and they said there is disc damage. I am starting to have hip pain and stiffness on both sides. I also have a sore throat, which may be due to a thyroid issue. I have done many tests, but there was nothing major. I work as an IT recruiter and have faced many problems in my career. Since my job involves sitting for a long time, I have dizziness, neck pain, hip pain, and neck stiffness. I have had poor posture issues since childhood. Also, I have chronic migraine issues when exposed to the sun and chronic acidity. I take Mahayograj Guggul, Sinhanad Guggul, and Ekangveer Ras. I had taken a CT scan, and everything was normal. However, there were early signs of spondylitis two years back. So I want to know why this problem is not resolved. And, I want to go for an ayurvedic treatment.

Kindly suggest me a solution to overcome this problem.



Welcome to

I went through your query and understood your concern.

Your symptoms are suggestive of cervical spondylosis, which is degenerative osteoarthritis of the neck. Neck stiffness, pain, giddiness, or feeling of fainting are typical symptoms. Your lower back region, the lumbar region, may also be affected, and there may be spondylosis or spondylolisthesis. I suggest you to get MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) lumbar spine for an accurate diagnosis. If nerves emerging from the vertebrae get compressed, it may cause leg stiffness, tingling sensation, or burning sensation on the thigh or the calf region. Also, incorrect postures while sitting or traveling, bike riding, and excessive diet intake causing vata can also contribute to the condition.

According to Ayurveda, there may be vata dosha in your body, causing excessive bone degeneration, leading to weak bones and muscles. Ayurvedic medicines and some Panchakarma procedures can relieve your symptoms and help cure your condition. However, I suggest you to follow the instructions mentioned below,

1. Correct your posture while seating.

2. Use a cervical and lumbar support belt if necessary during travel or work.

3. Do mild exercises and yogasanas like Ustrasana, Bhujangasana, and Uttanpadasana.

4. Consume fresh, warm, and nutritious food.

5. Avoid refrigerated food and drinks.

I hope this has helped you.
