Two disc herniations 1 pinching C8 ddd canal stenosis and severe carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands. Which is causing severe hand numbness 3yrs ?
Likely carpal tunnel: Both have overlap within the hands depending upon the distribution. MRI is necessary of cervical spine and in many cases if distribution is not distinct, further an EMG/Nerve conduction study to delineate. In most cases however, it is more likely the carpal tunnel is the culprit. Consultation/examination by a neurosurgeon would be most appropriate for diagnosis. ...Read more
Ongoing pain in neck and trapped nerve. After having a mri and xray it has been confirmed bulging disc between c5 c6. Surgery next option?
Cervical spine surge: Surgery should be your last option. More than 90% of damaged discs heal by themselves over time. For ongoing nerve pain and neck pain , you should get a cervical epidural steroid injection done by a qualified and experienced pain physician under x-ray guidance. Also start physical therapy as soon as you can to relieve muscular spasm. ...Read more

Diagnosed with genitofemoral neuralgia as a result of spermatic cord denervation procedure. Lots of pain and numbness. Would neurectomy help?
Challenging: Have found that these kinds of problems may deteriorate further following additional procedures, and better to try drugs such as Lyrica (pregabalin) or Cymbalta, with physical therapy, and exercise. A medical food called MetanX twice daily may provide benefit over several months. A local nerve block or even a sympathetic block may be tried. Would delay neurectomy. ...Read more
X-ray results showed- advanced L5-S1 degenerative disc disease, moderate facet in lower lumbar spine, L5-S1 4mm retrolistnesis and moderate sclerosis ?
Worn down: L5-S1 is the lowest motion segment in the spine. The MRI shows that level has become "worn down" leading to degeneration of the disc and the facet joints, sclerosis, and a slight slippage (retro listless) of one vertebrae on the other. Don't hesitate to be seen. Many good treatment options available. ...Read more
I've had 4 ekgs, 2 stress, 6 holters, mri, cat 4 echos. Are these enough test see if structrallu normal? What could be causing multifocal pvcs?
Too many: I hope that all these tests were not ordered by the same physician, at least not within a short time. The repeated tests you list, if all normal, are more than enough to definitively exclude structural heart disease. "multifocal pvcs", in-and-of-themselves, are not life - threatening. They need treatment only if they cause troubling symptoms, or if there is underlying heart disease. See an ep doc. ...Read more

You should avoid heavy lifting and jumping or doing any activity that can cause a large increase in pressure on your back. Physical therapists are trained to help with pain and to assist with recovery. They will be very careful not to cause harm. Just follow their directions for home activities. ...Read more

There are also patients with neuromuscular conditions such as cerebral palsy that have muscular imbalance and can have scoliosis.
