i have suffered severe!!!! neck pain now for more than 10 years i recently had a 3rd MRI scan which the reults read as follows: mild reversal of the normal lordosis.
from c2 to c7 bulging of the discs together with hyprtrophy of the unconvertebral joints.
at c5/6 disc bulge is mildly touching the anterior aspect of the cord.
osteophytes at c5/6 irregular endplates,these degenerative changes are severely narrowing the neural foramina at c3/4 on the left side.
and at c5/6 bilaterally with probable involvement of the intraforaminal portions of the corresponding nerve roots.
i was made an appointment by my consultant to see EDITED at Southampton university hospital , considered to be the best spinal surgeon in the UK and now i have received a letter of change of appoint ment to see a neurologist instead?? does this mean i am not considered for surgery any more of which i felt i was being led to beleive i would need???!!!! i am so confused and worried that i am being led down the garden path yet again are there any people out there to offer any ideas as my gp doesnt seem to care?
