Whenever I tell my PCP about all of my symptoms he looks at me like I am out of my mind: tingling in the legs at various times in various places (no pain), weak right arm AND weak right leg (that began about the same time), vertigo, spasms in arms, legs, trapezius, lats, calves, butt, severe left shoulder and upper back pain, tingling in the back of the head, occasional urinary issues (sometimes urgency, sometimes difficulty getting all the urine out, sometimes leaking (GYN doc says everything is fine). One chiropractor and a neurosurgeon say a lot of this is due to lower back injury/issues, but my lower back doesn't hurt but once in a blue moon. An orthopedist and my PCP said it is all caused by my C-spine issues. MRIs show severe herniation at C4-5 and C6-7, bulges at C2, 3, 5, and ddd in cervical ddd in L-spine (one big bulge but no herniations). Does anyone else have these whacky symptoms? Are they all from cervical degeneration and herniations? What in the world is causing all of this? (MRI does show impingement on the spinal cord at C4-C5, but nothing major.)

Weird symptoms! Could this all be from my bad neck?
