I have been diagnosed as surrefering from osteophyte since 1979, found at C2-C3, then in 1985 occured also at C4-C5, and in 2000 - 2002 was diagnosed to be anterior osteophyte at V-C6 = Spondelysis Cervicalis.
now (2010) I start to feel very painfull at both my shoulder, numb at my left arm and left eye, I would like to know for second opinion about the paralyze possibility in the shor time. The symphtomes and my suspect just like what is discussed in Chiro Web as I copied: "It can also be seen as a shearing, a nonphysiological forward slip of the lower cervicals on each other. The pattern may be unilateral or bilateral and usually occurs at C5-6, C6-7 and C7-T1. This subluxation pattern is often found in patients with forward head posture and excessive thoracic kyphosis, so often seen with aging or slumped posture. This anterior cervical syndrome can contribute to or mimic nerve root problems. The pain shoots into the shoulders and arms, with or without such neurological findings as changes in sensation or muscle weakness"
