Been gone form this board for a little. going to post info to refresh a little.
mri report info:
At the C2-3 level and at the C3-4 level, no abnormalities are noted.
At the C4-5 level, there is mild circumferential endplate spurring and moderate broad-based disc bulging effacing the ventral thecal sac and narrowing the AP diameter of the spinal canal to 9.5 mm,compatible with mild spinal canal stenosis.
At the C5-6 level, there is no focal disc protrusion, spinal canal stenosis or encroachment upon the neural foramina. decrease in the AP diameter of the C5 and C6 vertebral bodies with narrowing of the C5-6 intervertebral disc space, compatible with partial congenital fusion at this level.
At the C6-7 level, there is mild circumferential endplate spurring and moderate broad-based disc bulging effacing the ventral thecal sac and narrowing the AP diameter of the spinal canal to 10 mm,compatible with borderline spinal canal stenosis. FINDINGS:
1. Partial congenital fusion of the C5 and C6 vertebra with decrease in the size of the disc at the C5-6 level.
2. Mild kyphosis of C4 through C7, which may be secondary to the congenital fusion of C5 and C6 vertebra or secondary to muscle spasm and clinical correlation is recommended.
3. Mild degenerative changes without fracture or subluxation.
4. Mild spinal canal stenosis at the C4-5 level and borderline spinal canal stenosis at the C6-7 level secondary to endplate spurring and broad-based disc bulging.
my nerve study has shown chronic bi-lateral cervical radiculopathy at 5-6-7 and bi lateral carpal tunnel. My hands have had decreased feeling for over 2 months constantly tingly and several times a day going totally numb. My neurologist is sending me to a neurosurgeon. Neurologist said if it were just 1 level I would have been fixed already but I am so diffuse with so much involved I may be forced to wait until things are severe. He said I have double crush since c6 nerve and carpal tunnel. Apparently the neck nerve being pinched for years has made the nerve angry enough to get issues below. He also said we cant fix 1 spot and not the other that both need fixed to repair this damage. Anyone have any ideas what to do from here?
