I am 31 years old that was recently diagnosed with Cervical Stenosis, along with Disc Degeneration Disease, and central canal stenosis along C5-C6 (mild to moderate) and C6-C7.
I have led an active lifestyle and this came as a huge blow
" height="20" /> , I do have numbness along my left thumb and weakness along left arm e.g grips are affected.
I took the conservative route to manage this problem (avoiding steroids, focussing on anti-inflammatories, icing, postural changes/PT). I have had conflicting opinions regarding numbness and weakness, some of the docs I met, suggested that it shouldnt prolong for more than a month or two, but some did mention that if it stays along for couple of months, there is no guarantee, it would go away.
Has any one faced this dilemma? I am contemplating a nerve root injection to resolve this. Would this actually help?
