I'm new to the site and wondered if anyone had any input on my MRI results. Have not seen neurologist since getting results from chiropractor. MRI states stenosis at c4-5 measures 6.6mm, c5-6 measures 5.7mm and c6-7 measures 6.9. How severe is this? I know it's like half the normal size. I had previous MRI 2 years ago for 2 herniated discs at c5-6 and c6-7. At that time some mild stenosis was noted. This report said moderate to severe and all stenosis is due to osteophytes at different areas/places in the canal. Is this a drastic change in two years? Have radiating arm pain, finger numbness, pins and needles, neck pain,losing strength in arms, etc. Also have had very progressive neuropathy(burning, tingling, numbness,electrical shock type pain, etc.) in the feet and legs that started 6-9 months after first herniation 2 years ago. Neurologist has found no underlying cause for the neuropathy and has exhausted all tests for it. Could the stenosis be causing this too?
Thanks for any replies.
