I had some xrays today

I went to see my MD today but I couldn't get in so I saw an associate. He tested my arm strenght and ordered xrays. The xrays are being sent out to a Radioligst because he has never seen anything like mine.....

He says I basically have no disc space in my Thoracic spine. Since I have a follow up with my NS for my PLIF (almost a year now) he wants me to take my xrays along and he gave me another referal.

He also gave me a steroid pack and pain meds.

In May I had a bad problem in my upper back but it seemed to get better for a few weeks. Then I started having right arm pain. Now I have pretty decent muscle spasms, right and left arm-hand pain and numbness and tingling in my hands. Very much similar to what I was feeling in my lower half before my surgery.

Has any one had this weird issue before?
