Abnormalities Of Neck Vertebrae
Hmmm: Can't be described in 400 characters. Probably can't be appropriately described in a 400 page text book. There are 7 cervical vertebrae, 12 rib bearing thoracic vertebrae, 5 non-rib bearing lumbar vertebrae (there are normal variants to these by the way) .There are 5 fused sacral vertebrae, and usually 3 vestigial coccygeal bones. The spinal cord extends from the brain down to about l1/l2, and.... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Neck cracking/popping, forehead/scalp tingling, the result of pinched nerves in neck? MRI's and CT's of head were normal.
MRI of lumbar spine showed regions of focal fatty replacement and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine and chronic wedge deformities. Should I worry?
Not too much: The area of fatty replacements and/or hemangiomas within the lumbar spine are not significant, and pose no future problem for you. However, the chronic wedge deformities may be due to prior trauma with injury to the vertebral bodies, or possible osteopenic compression fractures. Discuss with you doctor about possibly osteoporosis or other bone abnormality, and how to limit further injury. ...Read more
In WHIPLASH INJURY the nerves originating from spine inside vertebral column, CAN NERVES SNAP OUT? Due to rapid movement of neck.
No: Short of a traumatic displaced fracture or dislocation of the spine, the nerves do not "snap out" of their normal position. They are protected by strong ligaments and the bone architecture of the vertebral column that would have to be disrupted for them to move into an abnormal position. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can lower back issues like compressed ,bulging disks, or Spondylosis of the lumbar spine cause numbness in the soles of your feet?
Neck cracking/popping, forehead/scalp tingling, the result of pinched nerves in neck from bulges at C5-C6 and C6-C7 via neck MRI?
MRI's and CT's of brain were normal. Thanks.
Does not correlate.: The disk bulges at C5-C7 should affect your arm & neck, not the forehead & scalp. Many people live their ENTIRE LIVES with bulging disks & don't complain of any pain, so MRI or CT scan to "diagnose" bulging disks is actually a gross misuse of imaging. Talk to your doctor or a neurologist about your symptoms to undergo accurate testing. Or use HealthTap Prime. Good luck to you; hope you find cause. ...Read more
Spondylosis: Yes it can; neck pain and radiating symptoms to the chest or clavicle (collar)bone can happen, depending on the level in the neck that has degeneration....

MRI of my Cervical Spine
There is disc degenerative changes with associated impingement of the thecal sac , exit neuroforaminal encroachment.
MRI result?: So- what does this mean? It is common for MRI of the c-spine to show degenerative changes. Impingement of the thecal sac is not normally concerning. It is unclear what is meant by "exit neuroforaminal encroachment". Was there encroachment or not? If it is there, this normally means nerve root encroachment, which can cause symptoms that affect the arms. ...Read more
