What is the risk of having severe cervical spinal stenosis myelopathy? There is almost no CSF around T3/T4&6 due to narrowing from the disks and steno

What is the risk of having severe cervical spinal stenosis myelopathy? There is almost no CSF around T3/T4&6 due to narrowing from the disks and steno

It depends: As another doctor pointed out, the "T" designation refers to the thoracic spine and you are indicating you have cervical canal stenosis. Therefore, I wonder if you really mean "C" when you indicate "T". Nonetheless, myelopathy is a clinical syndrome that is frequently due to spinal stenosis at whatever level, but the lack CSF around the spinal cord at a level does NOT necessarily imply myelopathy. ...Read more

Thyroid (increased T3 (liothyronine) and t4). What does this mean? Should I be concerned?

Thyroid (increased T3 (liothyronine) and t4). What does this mean? Should I be concerned?

Tell us TSH: Hi. Not enough information. Is TSH below normal? That's VERY important to know. T4 and T3 (liothyronine) can be elevated due to elevated thyroxine binding globulin (TBG) with completely normal thyroid function. It's better to measure free T4 and free T3 (liothyronine) than T4 and T3 (liothyronine) per se. So I can't tell you if anything is even abnormal without more information. ...Read more
