Can root impingement cause other issues than tingling, pain?
I just had a MRI cervical spine w/o contrast done. The impression was Stable degenerative changes. Mild central stenosis, left hemicord compression, severe left foraminal stenosis and left c6 nerve root impingement at c5-c6. Central and left paracentral c6-c7 osteophyte complex with moderate left forminal stenosis.
Can any of these cause "spells" where you suddenly just feel a pain across your back and then you have sudden extreme fatique to where you have to immediately find a place to lay down. You can't talk or move anything but can hear everything. It lasts approx. 20 minutes and afterwards very tired and worn out for the next day. I can slur my words at the beginning sometimes and people say I look different in my facial expression. I have had an EEG that showed no signs of seizures and am so frustruated. I'm called a mystery.
Can you please help me? Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. I can go into more details but may just confuse you more. Thank you!
