... Hello all, I posted VERY EARLY this morning and made no sense, No wonder I didnt get a reply, lol I'm sorry im just so weak in my arms and in so much pain needing answers.

... :wave: From my experience I would say depending on the severity of the impingement, that yes you will need surgery. I am 9 wks post-op ACDF C5-C6 I had severe cord impingement with the same symptoms that you are describing, vertigo, headache , severe pain down shoulder, numbness & tingling arms& legs. My NS said that with the cord involvement that surgery was necessary because... (4 replies)

... I had my latest pain management procedure on 11/13/12. Before going under, I talked to the doc, explaining my concern about the not more than 8mm width of the canal at C3-4 and C3-5 (from the CT) and the impingement on the canal in that area (from the MRI). He agreed that I should be concerned but said if I were to have another fusion, I would probobaly need another in 5... (47 replies)
... ing 275 to 325 lbs up over my head. I slipped and fell forward and caught myself on the stretcher but my arms and neck bent backwards. I was treated for shoulder impingement for about 4wks and went to see an ortho. He decided pain was coming from my neck. Now my shoulder is still killing me it clicks and pops when I move it. ...

... This post was rather old but I feel compelled to answer. I too suffer from impingement of c3-c7 but it is only touching the thecal sac and not the cord and I can certainly sympathise with your balance issues. I feel off kilter constantly, have a hard time doing the things you mentioned, but I can bend over to brush teeth but when I stand up straight I feel like I could fall... (3 replies)
... e a neurosurgeon or orthopedic spine surgeon and have them evaluate the situation. If your stenosis is bad enough I suppose it could impede the flow of cerebral spinal fluid but that would be very severe. ... (8 replies)
... Being that the spinal canal and the spinal nerves are very deep (beyond the muscle layers, etc) it seems unlikely that keloids could be causing any problems or discomfort. An MRI would show any nerve impingement, herniated disc, fractures or any abnormal growths. The only way to know the cause for your pain is to see your physician and maybe have an mri. (1 replies)

... Since no one gave you any answers, I did a little investigating and will give it a try. Question 1-yes you have spinal stenosis in the cervical area only according to your tests(not thoracic tests included). In your case, it is congenital as noted. Means you were born this way. As you get older, it closes up even more. Question 2- there is no mention of disk dessicatioin... (8 replies)

... Gloria, I saw that you posted a reply to me in another thread---Thank-you for that--you mentioned that I have the same symptoms as you did pre-op. (fasciculations, spastic gait, left-sided weakness, balance issues, heavyness in legs)...My MRI shows 1 herniated disc at C5-6, C6-7, bone spurs, and stenosis...everything is "mild to moderate" except where it's "severe C6 root...

... I had C4 to C7 spinal stenosis almost or slightly impinging on the cord (I think C6-C7 was the worst area). My balance was off for months prior to diagnosis/surgery. I travel a lot and escellators in airports were impossible the last few months. Surgery was in Sept. I was through ATL airport twice this past weekend and did the very long escellators there with no problem... (3 replies)
