In brief: Spinal cord edema

Spinal cord edema is never normal is is most certainly the cause of your symptoms.
The most common cause is cervical spinal stenosis. However if your MD does not think it is the cause, it is important to eliminate other reasons like infections, tumors, and even multiple sclerosis, depending on you age and other risk factors.
