Disc herniations can cause nerve compression which could lead to arm symptoms, and spinal cord compression which could lead to arm and leg symptoms.

35 yr-old started with paresthesias 4 yrs ago, that generalized to include autonomic symptoms and gastroparesis, looking for effective treatment.....?
Neuro exam?: Interesting case, but I'd like to know about her neuro exam.
