Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment on the situation or suggest an appropriate management plan. With canal stenosis and symptoms affecting the legs, a surgery may be indicated at this stage. For symptoms related to the arms, one would again require a detailed evaluation to find the primary cause. It would be best to discuss the possibilities and the management plan with your treating orthopedician.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
