So I'm kind of new here I posted my story under "howdid I get here" as my user signature and disaster after microdisectomy on 3/12 of this year and practically disabled on right side after microdisectomy l4/l/5 which more likely maybe the more I research it's after epidural which was following the surgery anyway 11 months later it's worse and everyone is still scratching their heads I've never had an EMG or any type of nerve test but again a blood test on 3/6 to rule out any arthritic or RA and even a cancer marker which is as I suspected all negative and that was done also because I had complained that I was also having some pain in my shoulders along with numbness and tingling into the fingers but only when sleeping well trying to im like " clothes in the dryer" in a constant spin... So the neuro spine and back surgeon who is a colleague to my spine surgeon also the dr who order the blood work and spec bone scan ordered this cervical
Spine MRI which I just had and here's what it said maybe some one can help me understand it
Performed w/o IV on GE 1.5 T high field MRI
Comparisons CT none , MRI none. *** however I will add here from myself I did have a full radioactive body scan on the 24th of December? Wouldn't that be a comparison?
Ok. Next the cervical vertebral body heights are maintained . No compression deformity or subluxation. No abnormal signal the cervical spinal cord . No significant canal compromise .
This I def don't get its in bold on the report
DISCOVERTEBRAL UNITS, NERVE ROOTS AND NEURAL FORMINA then this follows nothing about C 1 is there a C 1?
C2- C3 Unremarkable
Same for C5- 6,7. -T1 Unremarkable
Impression states ; there is no evidence of central canal compression , an appreciable disc bulge , definite discrete focal protrusion , or significant forminal narrowing .
End of report .
So even if someone doesn't understand the actual report but has anything listed here I had a neck injury from a car accident in 87 and suffered with a chronic sprain and migraines for years back then I probably had a CT and X-rays but they never saw anything wrong... My daughters neurologist for her migraines looked at my scan and said my neck is severely curved and she is not a radiologist but saw bulges in Btwn discs when she inhanced the screen ... Please I'm
From the failed something nerve damage forum what does this mean for my neck seriously have I joined a new forum am I looking at treatment for something new? And advice or knowledge would be desperately and greatly appreciated. How did I get here?
This can't be happening
