I am 35 with a messed up neck, what are some good quest. i should ask my neurolagist.
Mild to moderate left-sided neural foraminal narrowing at the
C3/C4 level, likely on the basis of degenerative uncovertebral
joint and facet joint change.
Broad-based disc spur complex noted at the C4/C5 level with
effacement of the anterior thecal sac and mild flattening of the
anterior aspect of the cervical spinal cord without cord
compression. There is mild cervical spinal stenosis at C5/C6.
Degenerative facet and uncovertebral joint changes result in
moderate to severe right and moderate left neural foraminal
narrowing at C4/C5.
Mild to moderate bilateral neural foraminal narrowing noted at
C5/C6 with more prominent broad-based disc spur complex noted
with moderate flattening of the cervical spinal cord without
definite cord signal abnormality. The appearance is compatible
with at least moderate cervical spinal stenosis with the AP
dimension of the spinal canal approximately 7 mm.
At the C6/C7 level, there is a left paracentral disc
protrusion/spur complex, again with moderate cervical spinal
stenosis and mild to moderate flattening of the cervical spinal
cord eccentric to the left without any cord signal abnormality
identified. Only mild left-sided neural foraminal narrowing at
the C6/C7 level is noted. The C7/T1 level is essentially within
normal limits. Incidental note made of disc space narrowing at
the T2/T3 level. This is my mri report. Any advise?
Hi, you have multiple disc bulges along with cord compression which can lead to pain in neck, arms and legs. Please consult neurosurgeon for the needful. Treatment depends upon the kind of symptoms you are having.
In case of bearable pain, no arm or leg weakness, medical treatment like pain killers, physiotherapy, etc is sufficient but if pain is intolerable or neurological issues are present than surgery is needed but always try to avoid surgery until it is extremely necessary.
