... Hi Binx welcome to the board and thanks for your post. I have a C5-6 herniation with attendant shoulder pain numbness in my feet. Three weeks ago my NS said surgery ASAP he scared me quite a bit.

... Hello, Does anyone know if foraminal narrowing at C2/C3 could possibly cause numbness of the cheek area? Every now and then I get an area of complete numbness in my right cheek only.
