Wanted to post an update as some of you responded that you had similar symptoms after having a lumbar issue.
I had my cervical MRI today and then went straight to my surgeon for him to read the results. I have been having left sided neck stiffness and left arm pain in my elbow, bicep, wrist, thumb.
My xray showed decreased height between C6/C7 my doctor was worried about a herniation. My MRI showed no herniation - Yea! I have slight bulges but no nerve impingement and the nerves look good. I am going to start PT on my neck and he thinks this will help my arm pain. So my diagnosis was cervical DDD. Not really happy about that but what can I do to stop it from happening.
I am hoping that the therapy helps as it is really achy and sore down my arm. Anyone with additional suggestions would be appreciated!
