cervical spondylosis involving multiple levels, particularly C5 and C6. All cervical discs are dessicated and there are spur/disc complexes from C3 thru C7 ENCROACHING upon the spinal cord. Slight neural foraminal encroachment is seen due to uncovertbral spurring at multiple levels bilaterally.
dessication, , comments about encroachinng make me nervous. My pcp or my pain dr's are not really neurologist's or neurosurgeons. I've had a cortisone shot and it helped a little. Do I wait for it to encroach on my spine. The only word I'm unfamiliar with is uncovertebral. Any personal opinions? :??
