See your doctor: You doctor should be able to tell you what the spots are.. They could be benign, or may indicate serious pathologies. Regardless your symptoms suggests spinal cord compression from either bone spurs, disc herniations, tumors etc. With associated cervical myelopathy. There could be other causes. You need to see a spine surgeon so your problem gets diagnosed and treated prior to things worsening.
