Thoracic Spondylosis Without Myelopathy
Nonsensical: The spinal cord ends at about l-2, and most common disc issues are present at l4-5, and l-5-s-1. In order for a disc to affect the spinal cord, we are talking about a problem in the lower thoracic spine, or a rather unusual high lumbar disc fragment, perhaps. Myelopathy means involvement of spinal cord, so are we really using the term incorrectly here? Ask your doc about this. ...Read more
Cord compression due: To disc issue in the neck region usually with degenerative disc disease ; a small spinal canal diameter. Prior history of neck injury can accelerate degenerative changes ; smokers accelerate this rate 4x over a nonsmoker. A herniated large disc can cause a myelopathy which is cord compression but it is most often associated with degeneration leading to a too narrow spinal canal for the cord. ...Read more

MRI report: This means you have some spinal arthritis with some nerve compression (lateral compression) and some central compression of the caudal equine (where other defending nerves travel). There is also loss of the normal lumbar lordosis curve which may signify back spasm. This can only be interpreted based on your symptoms and neurological exam. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What would cause cervical spondylosis, central canal stenosis, disc osteophyte complexes, mild cord impingement, cervical straightening in 43 y/o?
Can be: ? Whether cervical scoliosis, arthritis & lumbar DDD are related to fibromyalgia, FM. One of the multiple co-factors seemingly co-causal of FM is global muscle atrophy & weakness, leading to widespread myalgia & tender points in spastic muscles repetitively stressed/injured by gravitational forces. Painful skeletal derangements can incite sedentariness with loss of muscle mass/tone. Gravity Rules. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Surgery: Spinal stenosis is the condition where the canal which the nerves and spinal cord travels gets narrow. This can be congenital or progressive due to arthritis. Rare causes for stenosis are infection and tumor. To cure it you need surgery. But if you have stenosis due to arthritis it can be treated with medications, therapy and injections. If those don't work, surgery may be the best option. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Somewhat: There are a multitude of treatments for spinal stenosis which to some extent can "cure" the symptoms of spinal stenosis to variable degrees. For example, an epidural steroid injection can sometimes cure the symptoms of spinal stenosis for a long time, sometimes well over a year at a time. But with any treatment, the symptoms can return, even if surgery is done symptoms can return. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Pinched nerve: Cervical spondylosis is arthritis in the neck. Foraminal stenosis means narrowing of the space where the nerves exit the spinal canal, in this case caused by bone spurs from arthritis. After they leave the neck these nerves form the three major nerves of the arm, controlling feeling and movement. Stenosis can cause pain, weakness, numbness or tingling in the arm or hand. High grade = severe. ...Read more
It varies: For many folks it is painless. It is simply part of the aging process. Depending on your genes, some degeneration begins during the teen years; everyone has some by the mid 60s. In other folks, spondylosis can be associated with pain, stiffness, nerve compression and symptoms like leg pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, trouble walking, even trouble controlling the bladder or bowels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Technically yes but: People are born with a small, medium or large spinal canal. Spinal stenosis is when the canal is too narrow for nerves resulting in compression. Canals narrow with time due to degeneration. By age 60, 20% have by imaging stenosis but not necessarily symptoms. Other causes are: congenital v acquired due to - fracture, herniation, tumor, fat, instability. Most are treated without surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can cervical radiculopathy and intervertebral disc disorder with myelopathy, cervical region cause bladder problems?"
And the question IS?: I'm afraid your question mark should really be a comma if anything. I'm not catching your drift. Are you asking for a list of symptoms associated with IVD disease without myelopathy....or if one could even exist without the other? Perhaps, you're copying something out of a report? Revamp your question and send through again. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
