A 43-year-old female asked:

If there are two areas of my upper arm that i now can't feel when touched is that a sign of mylopathy or cord compression?

Cord compression: With spinal stenosis resulting in cord compression, these neurological symptoms are quite common. You need to learn the right PT exercises to alleviate your symptoms as well heat and positioning of arms for maximum comfort. Nerve conduction study by your neurologist can rule out myelopathy if medically suspected. Good luck!
