    Hiya Maria. I also have multi level spondylosis and I get tingling, numbness and pain. Mainly down my left arm and left leg. This is caused through stenosis,  pressure on the spinal cord. I am experiencing severe pain at the moment mainly in my neck. I am due to have another MRI on 12th December to see how much deterioration there has been since my last one, which was in September.

      The medication I take at the min takes the edge off the pain. I am on naproxen, gabapentin, solpadol and amitriptyline. I have tried a whole concoction of meds, but I find these work best for me at the mo. I am on the highest dose with all of them.

    i got it in my left arm. But it was more related to nerve compression of the nerves exiting the neck. Postural reeducation and a few exercises and stretches got it under control..

    No medications...I don't want to go that route because this is not a physiological molecular problem ...It is a mechanical compression  problem. By progressive stretches and yoga you will find relief I believe. Meds have a way of enslaving people and them giving them side effects later on to have to deal with.
