Please, I need some input, do not understand all of the terminology..
C Spine as follows:
1.. There are degenerative disc changes at C4-5, C5-6 and C6-C7
2.Neural foraminal stenosis C3-4,C4-5 and C5-6 due to uncovertabral osteophytes

6 views of the cervical spine were performed.There is a 2mm retrolisthesis of C5 and C6. Endplate osteophytes are noted C4-5, C5-6 and C6-7.There is a loss of disc heightat C4-5 and C5-C6. Oblique views show right neural foraminal stenosis C3-4 and bilateral neural foraminal stenosis C4-5 and C5-6 due to unconvertabral osteophytes.

T Spine:
1..There are degenerative disc changes within the thoracic spine
2..Mild exaggerated thoracic kyphosis
Endplate osteophytesare present within the middle thoracic segments.There is some mild exaggeration of the kyphotic curvature of the thoracic spine

Lumbar Spine.
1.. degenerative disc changes are noted at L2-3,L3-4,and L5-S1
2..Generalized lumbar facet sclerosis
3..Mild right convex thoracolumbar scoliosis
4..Grade 1nterolisthesis of L3 on L4
5..The L4-5space is indistinct . These vertebrae may have been fused.. { 3 back surgerys on these vertebrae back in 1992)
5 views of the lumbar spine were performed.There is right convex scoliosis of the thoracolumbar spine extending from T11-L2 which creates a curvature of about 17 degrees. Endplate osteophyes are noted at L2-3,L3-4 and L5-S1.There is intense degeration enplate sclerosis within the endplates at L5-S1 level.The L4-L5 space is indistint suggesting possible fusion at this level.There is degenerative facet sclerosis at each lumbar level.

Right shoulder..
1..Sclerosis and irregularity of the greater tuberosity of the right humurus.Showing chronic shoulder impingment.
2..osteoarthritis of the acromioclavicular joint..

I have numbness and heaviness in arm, legs.Numbness in hands fingers and face and head.. Sometimes the pain between my shoulder blades and right leg are a hard burning kind of numbness,, Also have been havins bouts of dizziness or feeling as real drunk, memory problems and trouble focusing.Dull achy headache at all times that will not go away.
