talked to neuro today
Hi everyone.... I got a follow up call from my neuro today about the c spine mri !!!. seems I have a bulging disc at the c5 & c6 vertebre... he said it's impressing on the spinal cord slightly....

its an abnormality, but not emergency... he said we will talk about it more at my 4/1 appointment... about a poss appt with nuero surgeon and other possibilities..

questions: I understand this can affect my neck and cause all the pain I'm in... but what about my feet, legs and lower back?? does anyone have this or know about it?  

I'm happy for anything they find just to get some relief and to know I'm not crazy... but what can they do?

Thank you... Dawn

Dawn,
It doesn't take much to erode the signal in our systems - it stands to reason that  its quite possible that the C5 and c6 bulge could cause pains up and down your body  I imagine someone here must have experience with this and can help you with an answer.  

Did this neuro say that this is the cause of all of your problems?  4/1 is not that far away - I'm sure you are anxious to get the full report.

Remember, Dawn, that all the nerves that go from the brain to the lower body have to run THROUGH the neck on their way down.  So problems in the cervical spinal cord can cause problems anywhere from the neck on down.  If the problem is high enough in the cervical spine it can also cause problems in the face!
