I have recently been diagnosed with spinal stenosis. I have four cervical disc protruding on my spinal cord of which C4/5 and C5/6 have been diagnosed by two neurosurgeons to need a two level fusion.
My concern, I was originally having pain that caused me to get an MRI and then started Cervical traction, and that along with reduced "weights" during my workouts have seemed to take most of the pain away. I can simulate head movement that will cause "electrical shock" sensation to go down both arms. The tips of my fingers on left hand do tingle.
I hear about the paralysis risk of being in a car accident ..etc.. Should the above simptoms (risk of paralysis) and "electrical shock" be enough to get me to the operating room?
Any input is appreciated. Thanks, Craigr
