I am new here. I have a cervical disc herniation at C-5-6 with annular tear abuting spinal cord the herniation is a central posterior and it is right in middle 0f spinal cord. There was only a 9mm stenosis of the central canal from MRI There was no flex extension MRI which I feel is necessary due to symptoms I am having. I have neck pain,bilateral shoulder pain, numbness and tingling in "left" arm and hand,but pain in the "right" arm to forearm. Terrible balance problems , stiff legs,one leg, left will just kind of give out on me when walking at times, not always. HIP pain,sacro pain, but really never any lumbar pain ,like right where lumbar is, so odd and from research it points to mylopathy but the cord in a STILL shot of MRI only shows abuting?
