cervical disc extrusion on mri- as bad as it sounds?
Hi there:

I have just reveived the results of my cervical MRI, which reads, in part:

AT the C4-5 level there i ss small posterior disc extrusion with mild superior and inferior migration.  There is no significant spinal stenosis.

At the C5-6 level, there is a left paracentral and preforaminal disc extrusion with superior migration to th epedicular level.   This causes moderate left lateral recess stenosis with some mass effect on the descending C& root at this level.  There is also mild central spinal stenosis, without signofocant foraminal stenosis.  the extruded fragment is of a high T@ signal intensity.

My doctor has referred me to neurosurgery.  All I know is that this is fairly painful, and I am a bit concerned about my prospects here.  Also, why do both of my arms hurt and both of my hands go numb while I sleep?  sShouldn't it just be problematic on one side?
