Cervical disc herniation can cause stinging sensation in the throat and shortness of breath? It can get rid of this symptom? What are the solutions?
See your Doctor & be: Investigated for proper diagnosis, of your Shortness of breath, which to me seems to be related to your GERD. A GI specialist or a your Doctor will be able to treat that, but if your Cervical Disc is cause of your symptoms, then surgery might be needed if nonsurgical treatment does not help. Good Luck and Happy Holidays.
Encroachment: Any condition limiting space for the nerves causes encroachment. A herniated disc would cause encroachment. A bone spur would also cause. Encroachment does not imply pressure, or severity, or the presence of symptoms.
Not if it hurts: If you have recovered and have no symptoms, then yes. If you are currently symptomatic, not advised.See 2 more doctor answers
2-3 wks, then things: Change somewhat. Initially the nerve root takes a hard fast hit, & is not happy. Pain, numbness. Muscle weakness is urgent. As the swelling from the herniation decreases symptoms are less. If the herniation is large you may never get out of the acute phase due to the large space it take up in a small space. Rx with NSAIDS help. B sure you are seeing a fellowship trained spine surgeon.
Please help! What is the difference between cervical disc herniation and cervical disc encroachment?
Disc herniation: Is the process of the disc expanding outside of normal range. When they say encroachment, they are talking about the herniation itself moving toward, or encroaching, on either nerve roots or the spinal canal.
Can doctors tell from a MRI whether a cervical disc herniation is from aging or injury? I'm an active person but not sure how I got my disc herniated.
Probably not: Each case is unique, but herniated discs from various causes often look similar on MRI. By combining the MRI result with your personal history and symptoms, it may be possible to suggest a likely cause. Good luck!
It is possible: When the disc is not in its normal location as is the case with herniation symptoms can occur. Inflammation can occur, impingement can occur. If the swelling can be minimized and the pressure off the nerve somehow controlled, then it is possible to reverse. The longer a nerve is irritated the harder it maybe to treat.See 1 more doctor answer

Not exactly: A disc bulge may not be a herniation. Both can possibly impinge on the cord and the nerves. They are not related to your scleritis or your red puffy feet.

Blood work needed: I think it's important to get some basic blood test including thyroid and electrolyte evaluation with kidney function.

All in all, there is a need for basic testing as above.See 1 more doctor answer
