Disc bulge/ stenosis: Chronic neck issues. Anyone in the similar situation?

SukhreSSukhre San Diego, CAPosts: 205

I have bulged discs at C4-5, C5-6, C6-7 which causes stenosis. I have had some occasional pain in the hand, muscle spasm and headaches over years. Back in April they diagnosed the issue when I had severe headache and pin in my hand. The first physical therapy did not help. I have found a few exercises on internet which seems to be helping.

1) I also have pain/spasms on my knees//thigh that come and go. It is also come and go. I feel it every day.
2) I have spasms and pain in hand-shoulder that comes and go.
3) I also have some inflammations on my spinal cord (signal change in C5-C6)

None of it is regular or extremely severe. Should I keep on trying my exercises? Or is there a risk since it has already started to effect my legs?

MRI shows C4-C7 severe steonosis. Pain in hand.

    Need to discuss this with your doctor
    No one here is medically qualified to answer your questions about exercises

    Regarding the symptoms yor mention
    Very much like others with cervical issues.

    The only one that is not always consistent is the pain in your knees and thighs. But that could be muscular

    I would tell you to wait a couple of days before becoming anxious about a new pain

    So much if this is so common place for people with spinal problems before or after surgery
