Interesting... in 2004, I suffered a very sudden loss of 1/2 - 3/4 of the strength in my left biceps and deltoid. They didn't FEEL any different, but they just didn't WORK very well. Triceps was fine.

This was cleared up by a foraminotomy (C5, I think) to clear out bone spurs growing into the foraminal opening and impinging on the peripheral nerve as it left the spinal cord (radiculopathy). In your case, though, the foraminal impingement seems to be caused by herniated disks coming in from in front, so an ACDF would be the most likely solution, ONCE YOUR DOCS DETERMINE IT'S OK FOR YOU TO HAVE SUCH A SURGERY.
