I have cervical stenosis-mild to moderate--which is pressing on ventral surface of c4 5 w distortion of cord.

Have any of you with this had nerve pains in your feet? What about eye pressure pains?

I have had so many random pains all over my body and muscle twitches everywhere.Only one more week till I see NS to see if this is related!


  • i have had the worse pains in my left foot, and my hands something terrible, since i have been in p.t. it has gotten worse also. no eye pressure pains, but ear pressure all the time, aches. i have rupture c5-c6, and bone spurs, i too have muscle spasms, and twitches. spondylosis, ddd, and is all getting worse. i also have the lower back which has gotten worse also. pains popping up all over the place. i wake up and my hands are numb every morning. i just wanted you to know you are not alone. good luck with your dr's. appt. always LEO ~X(
  • My NS told me that when nerves get pinched, squished or crunched (not his techinal words but you get the idea) due to spinal/disk issues, you can have pain almost anywhere, feet, legs, arms etc.... For me it is all in my left arm, shoulder, I think the shoulder has been the worst. I had a strange sensation for a few weeks, where the left side of my face, and my shoulder felt like I had a bad rash, kind of a burning tingling feeling. It was quite irritating because when those areas were touched, by anything even water from the shower, it was uncomfortable, but not really painful. I also had a sharp jabbing on and off pain in the left side of my head. I guess the point Im trying to make is when it comes to nerves you can feel pain just about anywhere, in varying degrees, lasting varying times. Ive learned that nerves are interesting little things that can really screw you up anyway they want to! And the pain for me was excrutiating for a couple of months! I wish you well in whatever choice you make!

  • Early this year before I was on psyche drugs, I used to get a lot of spasms down my back. I'd wake up to a lot of twitching in my back, burning, tingling pain in my back and arms. It has seemed to lessen/disappear in my back either with time or my psyche drugs. Now I really only have pain in my left side: Shoulder, arm, hand, wrist, ankle, foot, shoulder blade...As well as lower part of my skull and back of my cervical spine.

    From the beginning where I'd get pain almost anywhere till 10 months later where it is more localized and makes a bit more sense...Below in my sig is what Im on and what I have...But basically I have two ruptured disc, mild central stenosis with no cord compression, impingement, and arthritis.
  • hi i have read your notes i must say its similar my ns said my spine looks like i played golf with it as a club that is my ortho says that i have to get the epidural done i got thatapp its in jan so another wait for an app 2 c them i previously had a neck fusion as you know it was down hill from there i reckon once the air gets in thats it like alu windows if they get scratched they start to decay at that spot we are the same the air gets in and starts working its mischief
