I was just referred to a neurosurgeon because my neurologist said my MRI showed a 7mm left paracentral posterior disk protrustion/extrusion causing pressue over the anterior aspect of the thecal sac as well as mild pressure over the left side of the conus medullaris. I have no pain but L'hermettes and lots of tingling. He said no running etc, so now I am totally freaked out! My EMG test showed no damage yet. Any suggestions? Maybe I should go to Loma Linda or UCLA? I have an HMO so not sure if I should change in June or how fast to act or what not to do.
