disk problems
I had a CAT scan for pain in my jaw and ears(no TMJ or any ear problems).  The results said narrowing of the disks between 4 & 5 and 5 & 6.  Both the ENT and primary physician said to see an orthopedic.  What am I looking at here, please?  I felt like the symptoms I was having were more of a tissue problem.  Would this cause pain in what I thought were lymph nodes and salivary glands?
Thank you!

Hi there!

The jaw and the ear pain is unlikely to be related to the disc narrowing at C4-C5/ C5-C6; though disc narrowing is a separate condition for which you would need to seen an orthopedician for an evaluation regarding the severity and appropriate management, if required. There could be a number of causes to the jaw and ear pain for which you would need to refer back to ENT.
Hope this information is useful.

Take care!
