... Hi All, My story: ACDF C5-6 in 2007. ACDF C6-7 in 2011. I've been having excruciating pain for about a week when I put my shampoo on my head (no joke). I decided to call my neurosurgeon and he ordered an MRI and x-ray. I don't have the report but I came home and looked at the images on CD.

... Jas... I am sure it has not escaped you that the MRI report stresses right-side problems, but your symptoms seem to be predominantly left-side. Also, your list of symptoms may have several cervical nerves participating, but those symptoms would stem, I believe, more from the C5 and C6 nerves, which come from the C4-5 and C5-6 levels. So, if I only knew your symptoms, and then... (25 replies)

... There are 2 issues that can lead to paralysis in the spine....the spinal nerves and the spinal cord. The spinal nerves peel off the cord at each vertebra(except C1) and go out to the body, and where they leave the cord, they can be compressed by herniated disks, or arthritic bone spurs or any combination of those 2. The compression is rated as minimal, mild, moderate and... (2 replies)

No significant root indentation or foraminal... (2 replies)
