I have been diagnosed with cervical and lumbar Stenosis (MRI). Age 63. I've also had a disc removed 20 years ago for a herniation.
During the last couple of weeks, I have had severe pain in my neck and shoulder. I know this is from the Stenosis pinching a nerve. But, a couple of days ago, the pain went away and left my right are very weak. I can't raise my arm higher than my neck. No pain, just very weak. Very frustrating as it's hard to brush my teeth among other things.
I have an appointment in two weeks with a spine center. My question is, will the strength come back or is it permanent?
Thanks in advance,
