A bit summary of me.. Myself Abdul from India Mumbai very happy go lucky guy enjoying life with all problems, love to workout in gym and hangout with friends.
Was working out in gym overhead shoulders and got a cramp just benath my shoulder, as usual i thought it because of weight took local meds but the pain got worst and the next 2 days and then got radiating pain in left triceps forearm numbness in wrist with little and ring finger and tingling.
story cut short
Assessed by a spine specialist after 5 days got Xray and MRI done reports is like this (including main points of MRI)
Vertebral anomalies seen in the form of right hemi-vertebra at C4 level wih congenital fusion of the C3, C4 & C5 vertebrae with rudimentary disc at c3-4 and c4-5 levels
Dessication and mild posterocentral disc bulge of C5-6 disc is seen
Asymmetric diffuse posterior bulge of c6-7 disc is seen causing bilateral neural foraminal narrowing with mild indentation of left traversing nerve root No cord indentation or spinal canal stenosis noted
mild diffuse posterior bulge of c7-d1 disc is noted

Lumbar spine reveals
sacralisation of L5 vertebra is noted
dessication and mild posterior dis bulge with focal posterocentral annual tear of L4-5 disc is seen which is causing subtle identation of the thecal sac.

Anyone has suggestions as i am really depressed and thinking that in near future i will be paralysed because of this even not able to resume my workouts which is more affecting my daily happiness

PLs help with your suggestion taking physical theraphy TENS and traction for cervical though pain in back is also there but doc has not advised anything for back
