Did anyone have
1) slight numbness & tinging of face. 2) very much exhausted around late afternoon like at 3 or 4 and feeling better around 7ish?

All my surgeons are asking to do a surgery. I am wondering whether I have issues in thoracic or lumber area as well.. is it worth checking? (No one wants to do an MRI of those area)

MRI shows C4-C7 severe steonosis. Pain in hand.


  • All of those symptoms go with cervical stenosis and myelopathy, and surgery is definitely necessary especially if you have urinary issues.
