I had a problem of tingling in my hand and foot, while MRI

Customer Question

I had a problem of tingling in my hand and foot, while MRI reprort indicates some nerves around spine getting some extra pressure. Dr indicated for operation but I didn't agreed due to its criticality. I got it checked with other neurologist and he suggested for taking traction. It was continued for 3-4 months. Slowly i started feeling better and completely free from any such problem. But about a month back i felt severe pain on my back and around shoulder got subsided by medicine given by Dr. Since then I am taking medicine regularly (6-7 tab daily) but the functioning of my right hand seams less by 30%. I am 75 yrs age taking regular medicine for blood pressure&chloestrol , what to do now
