I have numbness in my both hand as well as in my toes I have done blood test for sugar which was normal.

Hi Thanks for your query. We will have to rule out a vascular cause for it and I advise you to get an opinion from a general surgeon/Vascular surgeon for it because it is difficult for any spine condition to cause numbness in both Upper and Lower Limbs. In any case please also let me know if you have any neck/ Back issues as well. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

Neck massage will give good results. Use little good oil or plain water and massage from either side on the mid shoulder blade. Use your thumbs and move it slowly upwards on the back of neck up to the lower level of ear. Repeat 5 to 10 times. Do not do from top to down. Finally move your neck up and down, sideways left and right. Results are excellent.

First of all you need to reduce your weight. Visit your nearest physiotherapist and take treatment - ift, us, swd for next 10 days regularly followed by back strengthening exercises. Don't bent forward, don't lift heavy weight, do hot fomentation, sit straight with proper support, sleep on hard bed.

Nystagmust is unvoluntary or voluntary movement of eyes. It sometimes may happen due to excessive accommodation or eye strain. Though your case seem to be of weak extra ocular muscles. Get your eye sight tested along with complete orthoptic check up.
