My recent MRI reads: At C3-4 is worsening of disc space narrowing and interval development of a left paracentral disc protrusion with extrusion with flattening of the left side of the spinal cord without abnormal signal. Worsening central spinal canal narrowing, measuring 4.9mm in comparison to 7.1mm on the prior. Should I be worried about this? I'm trying to find info on the canal narrowing, what is normal? It feels like there are a million ants crawling down the left side of my neck in the back into my left shoulder and I have to lean my head to the right to get it to stop. My right ring finger goes completely numb and I fumble things constantly. I've already had a fusion C4, C5, C6 and C7 (my entire right arm was going dead - nerve damage issues). I'm a veteran and asked my PCP at the VA and all she said was that I have a bulging disc and it doesn't need surgery. Does anyone have this type of problem or ran into it? Thanks so much
