Probably not


This sounds more likely to be osteoarthritic changes. While ank spongy causes calcification of the spinal ligaments, true spur formation is an osteoarthritic characteristic.

With age we all unfortunately lose water and cartilage in our discs. This can cause the discs to bulge and is commonly seen on MRI. Disc bulges and bone spurs from the uncovertebral joints that compress nerves can cause arm pain, weakness, and numbness. I would follow-up with your doctor to determine if your symptoms are related to the changes seen on MRI.

The term "reverse cervical spine" as you put is an incomplete statement. What we often see is a reversal of the normal cervical lordosis and that describes an X-ray finding in which the neck is straightened.somewhat. Either neck or back problems are among the multiple potential causes of numbness in the legs. An MRI can be useful to further evaluate. Thank you.

Benign nerve growth


A Neuroma is a benign tumor or overgrowth of nerve cells which may grow from the nerve or be due to a focal injury. Neuromas can occur anywhere a nerve is. A cervical spine neuroma arises from nerves exiting the spine in the neck region. Many are small, and cause no problem. Larger ones or ones affecting muscle and pain function need evaluation. Your neurologist can help.
