... Hi, my name is Lyn (AngelinMichigan). I have recently been sent to this new Neurological Surgeon who is talking about possibly doing a very complicated surgery on my cervical spine. I have a pseudoarthrosis after having my original surgery in 2003 on C5/6 and 6/7 and I know 6/7 did not fuse from the beginning and no other surgeons would ever touch my case. I have never got out... (5 replies)
... Chuckstr....Thank you so much for your reply!!! I appreciate it that you say not to go to a chiropractor. Since I had my Fusion surgery in 2003 I have tried everything known to man to get out of pain. There is no one more confused than me. My story is on here and it will take too much time to repeat it and honestly I am so fed up with my own story that I don't want to listen... (7 replies)
... I really appreciate you taking the time to explain :) I will keep a list of my symptoms and talk with the specialist at my next appt which is in a couple weeks. This eases my mind, I will get back to the post as soon as I get answers from him. Thanks again! (4 replies)

... Make sure your neurosurgeon is a spine specialist. That is, that they have specialized training in spinal medicine and limit their practice to conditions of the spine. It is certainly true that the surgeon will take symptoms, your clinical exam and all diagnostics into consideration when coming up with a treatment plan. I do understand the desire to know what may be going... (4 replies)

MRI Cervical Spine
Mar 19, 2015
... Welcome to the board. I would have to concur that itching is not a typical symptom coming from a spinal issue of any kind, pinched nerve, stenosis, herniated disc, etc. However, nerve compression does affect a sensory nerve, and itching is part of the sensory system...so, I guess I wouldn't rule it out entirely. Speaking in very general terms, this MRI, which is four... (1 replies)

... HI, I had disk degeneration from C4-C7. I went on for 5 nightmare years trying EVERY possible thing and nothing worked for me. I must have done PT 10 times. I also had numbness in my hands that they couldnt figure out if it was from the nck stuff or carpal tunnel (oh boy, dont get me started on that). The neurologist was clueless. I finally had C5-C7 spinal fusion (and spur... (9 replies)
... Hello all, Thank you for the encouragement and insight regarding my health status. I met with my Dr. last night and he went over the MRI results with me. He was happy to see that there are no ruptured disks, spinal stenosis or extrusions goining on anywhere. However at C3-C4 I have a small central disc protrusion with compression of the Thecal Sac Also at C4-C5 I... (9 replies)
... Hello, I have degenerative disk arthritis C3 - C7. the numbness and tingling attached to this condition was a warning sign for me and your doc may well get it under control for you as it seems you've caught it early. The numbness and tinging is normally attached to a trapped nerve so stay away from chiropractors. Sometimes manipulation from a sports therapist can help.... (9 replies)
