Im new here. I went to a neurologist in October for the following: falling, dropping things, lack of dexterity in fingers/hand, can't seem to get limbs to cooperate (see a table, move around table, legs don't follow). He did MRI's with and without contrast on Brain and Neck to look for MS or something similar.
He found Cervical Stenosis at C5-C6 of 8mm. He said that there wasn't any pinching of my nerves, so this Stenosis can't be the root of the above symptoms. But he did say that I will have to have MRI's every 6 months and I will have to have surgery once I lose bowel/bladder function and have severe pain.
1. How bad is my Stenosis?
2. I'm having symptoms of nerve involvement that comes intermittently, so why does he think it's not the root of my symptoms?
3. What do I do now? For example, I went to pop my back in front of him cuz it hurt so bad and he said that's the worst thing to do.
Thanks for for any answers and Merry Christmas!
