Neck and waist are more painful. she has advised waist belt but no improvement. so many doctors are consulted but no satisfactory results. sometimes convulsions are also there. Tingling is felt upto brain. Can't sit on ground. can't stand so long.

Dear Practo user, as you described symptoms of your mother, she is having symptoms since last 20 years. May be she is a case of cervical spondylitis and lumbar canal stenosis. Get her MRI scan of cervical and lumbo sacral spine done. Consult with MRI report with orthopedic surgeon. Thanks.
