Hi new to spine health, what a great site, I am currently experiencing neck pain with nerve damage into my thumbs, middle finger, with thoracic pain, The pain, or nerve pain goes down both arms, I have to say that I have had mild symptoms for 7 or 8 years and didnt think anything much until the last couple of months. I also have lordosis, I saw a neurologist this past Monday, I went for an mri thursday night and awaiting results. He said that it sounds like a pinched nerve in between the 5th and 6th cervical vertebrae. He also said it was textbook sign, I have weakness in both arms, shoulders kill me, he put me on prednisone for now and I will have an emg next week to see where the nerve damage is. Yikes, sometimes the pain is horrible. I am anxious to see what the mri says and what we do next. The xray I had back in Aug said lordosis, moderate c4-5 disc loss, right greater than left altotoaxial joint space narrowing, I know this was just the x-ray, but I have got something going on, anyone in the same boat?
