After having a tight neck and shoulders I went to the dr. and got an MRI. They found small broad based disc herdiation at C4-C5, and C5-C6 with slight cord impingement, with a small disc herniation at C6-C7. They also found stable Chiari I malformation, cord intrinsically normal. Recently I've had some numbness on the top right lip and top roof of my mouth. (I also received a mouth guard for clenching at night- left jaw hurts when I chew). What could be causing the numbness?
In the past I have received trigger point injections as well as cervical epidural. Is this something serious? Or is it TMJ?
