I'm at my wits end. I've been dealing with all over body pain (burning and tingling in joints, aching joints, burning arms, burning legs, burning ribs, burning head and face, burning back, burning skin) and I've had mutliple MRI's, EMG's, and Nerve Conductions to no avail. They say my findings (5 herniated discs) are not consistent with my symptoms.
What seems funny to me is that whenever I sit for long periods of time or exert my back (such as in sex or exercising) the pain gets permanently worse and even affecting all other areas of my body.
Anyways, here is the MRI that reports that the myelomalacia "mysteriously disappeared".
HISTORY: 28-year old male with possible myelomalacia on prior MRI
EXAM: MR THORACIC SPINE NO IVCON. Noncontrast MRI of the thoracic spine was performed at 3.0 Tesla.
PRIOR STUDY: 8/8/2014
FINDINGS: There is anatomic alignment in the thoracic region of the spine. There is no spondylolisthesis. Vertebral body heights are preserved. There is mild disc dessiccation in the lower thoracic levels.
At T5-6 there is a central disc protrusion with effacement of anterior thecal space and deformity of the cord. There is no abnormal cord signal. The previously described altered signal is not seen to advantage.
At T6-7 there is a central disc protrusion with mild canal stenosis. There is no foraminal narrowing.
At T9-10, there is a right paracentral disc protrusion, with effacement of the thecal soace and deformity of the cord. There is no foraminal narrowing.
There is no foraminal narrowing throughout the thoracic spine. The soft tissues are unremarkable.
IMPRESSION: Central disc protrusion at T5-6 with mild canal stenosis. The previously described altered cord signal is not seen to advantage. Disc protrusions with mild canal stenosis at T6-7 and T9-10 are also unchanged from the prior MRI.
