numb arm
Last November I had a ruptured disk at L3-L4 which was operated on. I was having pain and tingling sensation at the right leg before surgery. 2 days ago my right arm was kinda numb from my shoulder to my wrist. Could it be due to the ruptured disk? Do I need another mri?

Hi.

It would be unlikely that the ruptured disk herniation seen and operated on at L3-L4 would cause your symptoms of arm numbness. Nerve impingement or compression secondary to cervical disk protrusion or degenerative disc disease might be causing the symptoms you are experiencing.

You would probably need an MRI of the cervical spine to determine if there is indeed a spine condition causing the symptoms.

Hope this helps.
