I was hoping for your input on my MRI and Drs visit. I went to the NS one month early because of new right arm symptoms. I have chronic left arm pain and weakness from a cord compression last year causing myelopathy. I was really concerned about my right arm because of the pain and weakness.Its very frustrating when both of your arms are clumsy.I get the MRI done and it shows,
A Disc protrusion midline and slightly to thr right at C7 T1 with mild compromise of the anterior subarachnoid space. My Dr told me he talked to the Radiologist and he said that it was normal and not much different from Mays MRI. I did not have right arm symptoms in May and they called it a disc bulge back then.
Is there a difference in a bulge and protrusion? Does anyone know what compromise of the subarachnoid space means?
My intuition has never been wrong when it pertains to my neck.You think another opinion is warranted? The last time they described a MILD disc bulge, it turned into a major problem with the cord compression.
Your input is appreciated as I have few people I can talk to about this. Bethy
