I am 44 years old and have just been diagnosed with moderate spinal canal stenosis in C6/7 exit foramen, I also have degeneration of the lower cervical discs C4/7. I was referred to a neurologist because I was having a problem with pain in my hip, which came on suddenly and was severe when walking and stopped at rest. I was also experiencing pain in my left thigh when walking and pain at the top of my left foot. I also experience pain in my left arm which feels as if I have banged my elbow. All the pain is intermittent and accompanied by a feeling of weakness and loss of circulation in the left arm and leg. On examination I had a loss of sensation in the left side and weakness in the left arm and leg. MRI brain scan was normal. My neurologist has advised my own Dr that my spinal stenosis is not relevant to the symptoms I am experiencing. I am also diagnosed with mild scoliosis since childhood. Could anyone please give me some advice as to symptoms they are suffering with the same diagnosis, I am thinking about getting a second opinion, I cannot see what else could be causing these symptoms. I would be grateful for any advice.
