In 1999, I was in an accident fx'ing C-5-C7. I had a spinal fusion and bone graft performed 1 month later. In the last 11 years, my only progression in symptoms has been increased numbness to my hands and in the last few weeks, pain to c-spine and across to both shoulder blades. I had an MRI last week that revealed myeomalacia. All of the information I have seen so far talks of a quick progression of this disease but mine seems to be slow. Does anyone know if this is normally a slow or fast progressive disease? Also, what signs and symptoms can I expect with this disease between C-5 and C-7?
