You need to be sure that you are examined by a neurologist or neurosurgeon to help you find out the cause and offer treatment which is appropriate.

Consider MRI if your x-rays and CT scans were normal you probably do not have anything serious. You might want to consider an MRI as it is more sensitive to a disc herniation.: If your ct scan and x-rays are normal you probably do not have anything significant. You might want to consider an MRI of your cervical spine as it is more sensitive to disk herniation could be pressing on nerve roots .Most likely that test would be normal as well. Massage therapy and physical therapy may be what you need to get back your strength and feeling of well-being. ...Read more
