What is cervical spondylosis? What does it mean if C5 - C6 and C6 -c7 disc shows diffuse circumferential bulge?
Just means there are: degenerative changes noted. Just as you would expect to have wear at the bottom of your shoes, and on your car tires, just as you expect to develop progressive skin wrinkles with age, spondylosis is just degenerative changes of the spine, and at age 40, having diffuse disc bulge can be age appropriate. The hydration in the disc decreases with age, leading to disc bulging circumferentially. ...Read more

This means that you: Have arthritis setting in at a couple levels in your neck (spondylosis) at specific joints in your spine with possible inflammation from this irritation as well.

Would a C5-C6, mild left paracentral broad-based disc bulge & C6-C7, mild broad-based disc bulge cause arm/wrist pain? Tingling scalp? Help & thanks.
Possibly arm pain: A disc bulge at these levels can cause nerve irritation. C6 nerve pain can run down the arm on the thumb side and to the thumb. C7 nerve pain often involves the middle of the top of the forearm, wrist and the 2nd/3rd fingers. The scalp tingling is less likely to be from these disc issues. This could be occipital neuralgia.

Surgical risks are definitely increased with higher BMI, but if you are otherwise in good general health and a breast reduction is likely to reduce pain, you might be a candidate. With a BMI of 35.5, the surgeon will likely also ask you to lose weight before surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
