What is a:
large right paracentral/foraminal disc extrusion mildly
compressing the right hemicord and encroaching on the exiting right C6 nerve roots


  • I have a small far right herniated disc L5-S1 with disc material in contact with the exiting root nerve so I have sciatica in my legs and foot and weakness. Yours is the neck area and you're probably experiencing numbness and pain in your right arm or left or both? and pain in the neck area? I have problems in my neck C5-7 and I get numbneess and pain in my elbow and hand. So have you got a referral to a Neuro Dr or Ortho? Since none of us are Doctors what we can't do is really give you the plan of care except you would may get meds and a referral to a pain management Dr and perhaps give meds, physio, injections of steroids that may decrease the swelling. When you get the diagnosis from the Dr we'll be here to give you support. www.chirogeek.com was helpful info for many of us here. There is a lot of info on this site here at spine health. How're you feeling and what symptoms do you have? Did this injury or pain happen at work? Giving more info about yourself will give us a better idea of the support you need. Take care. Charry
