Hello everyone, I just got my MRI results from the Veterans Administration from my latest MRI and these were the findings:
*Mild hypertrophic & degenerative change
*Bone echo marrow pattern is consistent with patients age.
*Cord signal is within normal limits
No central canal stenosis. Small osteophytic spurs of mid and lower Cervical Vertebra.
Impression: Multilevel degenerative changes, as described.
Primary Diagnostic Code: Minor Abnormality
I'm just wondering in clear english what this means? I suffer from pain in the center of my shoulder blades and pressure that extends to the front of my chest. Both of my arms hurt and go numb and I'm losing strength in my left hand. If I sit up or I am mobile I feel pressure / pain in the center of my shoulder blades.
Any input / information would be greatly appreciated.
