Myelopathy: Your symptoms suggest a problem in the cervical spinal cord. An inflammation of the cord in that area due to a demyelinating disorder or a virus can cause these symptoms. However, more common problems like compression of the cord due to a bone spur or disc herniation need to be excluded. Please contact your doctor immediately for an urgent cervical mri. I hope you get well soon.
