Disc Bulges in C3-4,C4-5, C5-6
My MRI has shown multileval disc protrusions most prominate at C3-4, followed by C4-5, C5-6. All appear to be a combination of disc bulge, degenerative facet changes, ligamentous hypertrophy, and some minor osteophytic spurring. there is minamal cord compression and modest thecal sac compressive changes. How worried should I be, and at only 51 yrs of age what do I have to look forward to? I am being refered to pain management. Is this the right course of treatment?

Hi,

I don't know what your symptoms are but I kept having problems with shooting pains, numbness, etc going down my arm and they finally did an EMG/NerveCondution study that showed Radiculpathy at the Root Nerve.  I just had surgery for a disc replacement/fusion.  I am praying that I don't have permanent damage to the root nerve but I don't know how long it takes for relief.  Try not to let it go as far as mine did if possible and make sure they are doing all the correct test to show further problems.
