At c5-c6 small diffuse disc bulge, moderate to severe left neural foraminal stenosis secondary to facet disease?

At c5-c6 small diffuse disc bulge, moderate to severe left neural foraminal stenosis secondary to facet disease?

Question?: I am unsure what your specific question is. If these are the findings on a MRI/CT, the finding can be associated with cervical radiculopathy. The symptoms include pain in the lower neck, shoulder, arm, thumb and index finger. Treatments can range for medications, physical therapy, epidural injections to surgery. A spinal orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon can help decide on the best treatment. ...Read more

Neurosurgery consult: If you have symptoms of pain or neurological symptoms of numbness or weakness, it may be time to consult with a neurosurgeon to find out about the future need for possible surgery. I always recommend Neurosurgery for the neck. In the meantime, please see your primary care physician for pain treatment if necessary. ...Read more

What does hypertrophic change at the T9-T10 facets bilaterally -severe left, moderate right osseous neural foraminal stenosis mean? Lots of pain

Cause for back pain.: It means your main nerves coming from your spine that run through your vertebrae can be suffering of compression because overgrowth of the bony area is squeezing it/them.The pain is caused by the nerve itself that might be irritated by contact with the vertebra.Nerves transmit sensation so pain is triggered this way. F/u with your doctor to create a plan of action for treatment. ...Read more

What does hypertrophic change at T9 &T10 facets bilaterally - severe left and moderate right osseous neural foraminal stenosis mean? Cat scan

Spinal stenosis : You have arthritis in the mid back (thoracic level 9/10). The joints that connect one level with the next are overgrown and compressing the spinal cord and pinching the nerves as they exit the canal. It is important to see a neurosurgeon for an examination to ensure that there is no neurological problems from this arthritis and to develop a treatment plan for pain relief. ...Read more

MRI  says C6 & 7 bilateral uncovertebral spondylosis results in moderate to severe bilateral neural foraminal narrowing pain & numness hands sugary?

Radiculopathy: The neural foramen are openings along the sides of the spinal canal where the nerve roots exit the canal. Foraminal narrowing or stenosis(due to degenerative arthritis in your case) narrows the openings and can compress the nerve roots as they pass through. This can cause symptoms related to particular nerve roots(radiculopathy). The C7 root exits at C6-C7, hand numbness can result at this level ...Read more
