Still pinched nerve: What is missing is complete history and in your case, more importantly, your exam. An emg/ncs by Rehab Dr. or Neurologist may show which nerves. MRI performed with flexion/extension films may show different results. MRI not perfect. They are a picture. You are more than a picture.
