well
C5-6 shows bulge which is indenting the vertral thecal sac
C7-7 shows a bulge which is indenting the vertral thecal sac

and what does "mild reversal of the cervical lordosis" mean???

and scattered areas of fatty infiltration or hemanglomaas, mostly pronounced leftward at C6 ????
and my physical therapist mentioned Arthritis
and mild spondylosis at C6-7

So that's my pain in the neck...eh...lol had to says something, I'll see the doctor next week
so wish me luck at least everything from C7 to T1 looked good and C2 to C4 as well..

Lots of soft HUGZ

Pete looks like we make a good matched pair almost, we both got pains in the neck and pains in the
A ** ...but I also have knee pain too...
lol

Char,
I wish I could help you more with interpretation. But maybe that's best left for the doctor. I do know that a hemangiomma (sp?) is sort of a benign mass, as I have one around my thoracic spine. Never knew I had it until I started having all the MRI's for my LS, but mine isn't impinging on anything, I've had it for years, and evidently they're fairly common. But if they're pushing on a nerve that could be a problem.

I just want to send you some hugs! At least you have some areas of your spine that are still going strong!

Sorry to hear about your cervical spine problems. Are you having any shoulder or neck pain? I had fusion at C-5/7. Went through PT, shots until it got bad enough that I lost use of my left arm and had alot of dull aching in my shoulder and neck. Anyway, check out on the world wide web with the issues on your MRI. If you just type in what you wrote above alot of sites will give you an explanation of the findings. Just remember you can't always believe everything you read but there are alot of sites that give a whole lot of good information. That's what I do with my MRI reports so I have an idea whats going on so I can better understand when I see my doctor. Also, sometimes I get curious like you and want to know before I see my doctor. Good to hear you don't have any herniations but nerve impingement can be just as bad.

Char,
A website I used to use was spineuniverse.com. It was actually suggested by a former pain management doc I had used (one who only does injections). But I found it very consumer friendly, and that many of the articles were written by doctors from the Cleveland Clinic. Plus you could search just about everything related to the spine.

Hope it helps some!

Yes neck and left shoulder pain and a big fibro knot, have lower reflexes in my left arm, at last visit
with my pm doc he switched me off the vicodin hp to msir 15 mg, well the msir help for a lil while, but the pain is
worst now, so I think he'll be trying injection in my neck and left shoulder, we'll see. This will be my first treatments for my upper back since
the car accident (1997)....the long car trip to Michigan, (this past summer) always aggravates my neck and shoulder.(My folks live in Michigan) I'm in Texas.
anyways thank you both Jag and PALady
Hugz to you both as well...
lets all hope for a low pain day eh....my wish...
Well FatherJohn if we're going to meet you'll have to come to Texas, maybe see you at the Alamo...San Antonio is only 200 miles from here,
that wouldn't hurt me much...lol

Hey Chart, Sorry to hear the news about your neck pains. Yes, we seem to match up pretty well w/ our pains> Ha-Ha! When I had my fusion back in March, I had 3 rupturered disks but what cured the pain and numbness in my left shoulder and arm was when the Doc got rid of the bone spurs and calcium deposits which had built up where I had broken my neck way back when. So like Jag said, nerve impingement can be just as bad. He did fix that but I think I'm having pain now from the blow-outs he didn't fix as my pain now is totally different than before the surgery!!!
Now it's all right down the center of my spine w/ what feels like electric pulsating w/ the pain. It almost feels like a tens unit! I'm going back to see the surgeon in a couple of weeks but I know he will just tell me it either will get better or it wont!!! Oh well! I hope you have better luck!!

I just though of something and whoa nelly this could make us rich...I'll just says I flunked guitar hero 101, (a true
guitar hero flunky as label by my daughter "geezee mom") and that I got hurt with the guitar strap..lol ..
.just joking...
(disclaimer: jokin is my way of dealing with the pain, and no I won't really sue over this, this is just a joke)

Thank you PALady that site had a lot but nothing on the "reversal of the cervical lordosis" but that's probably
goes back to my car accident in 1997....

Char,
Can you tell me what lordosis is?

Probably the site would just tell you what it is, and a reversal would obviously mean it either improved or worsened, depending on its meaning. Or maybe that something changed direction. I don't know if any site is going to explain things specifically. When I used it I just read and pieced things together, but also got to a point where I recognized the doctor needed to answer certain things.

You could also search medscape.com, which is free and gives articles that are the lay version of some of the research. It also connects you with medline.com, which is one of the sites doctors use to access research. But some of those articles will make your eyes water! LOL Seriously, I just printed out about a 14 page research article dealing with Barrett's esophagus and pathology reports thinking I was doing myself a favor. I got through about two pages so far, and I think I've just confused myself even more!! But sometimes I learn a bit (maybe enough to be dangerous, as the saying goes). Still, before my back surgery I learned a lot about the research data on fusions by using medscape and medline. Medscape is free, but you can only get some articles and abstracts on medline; sometimes it requires you be a subscriber.

Hey Char,

Looks like you may have some nerve involvment going on. Ouch. Lordosis is the actual curve of the spine which normally curves in towards the throat. Mild means you are having a little straightening going on. Your curve is a little straight. Hope this makes sense.

It will be interesting to see what your dr thinks of the rest of the report. No wonder you are having pain. Have a good weekend and lets hope for some cooler Tx weather. We had a little rain!!

Chart

That is the problem I am having! I had a C6/7 disc fusion way back in 85, ( anterior approach) (went through the front!)  and now C5/6 is really bulging, but my main problem is that c6/7 disc fusion, it has grown and the bone is impinging on on the nerve roots. I have been getting severe pain in my left elbow running down into my left hand affecting the last three fingers! It is making it hard to use my left hand and grip any thing, and the forearm hurts so bad, kind of like hitting your crazy bone, but it is all the time! And it also causes pain from the front left side of my neck up into the back left side of my head and causes me to gag and have laryngeal spasms. I have been getting epidural steriod injections they help but don't last long enough my pain doc is send me to the neurosurgeon just to see if she can do anything to help fix it! My left arm is the real killer, and the laryngeal spasms, as when I have them I get electric shocks and needle stick across my front from shoulder to shoulder, and it stings like the dickens and it is really difficult to stop the gagging spasms! The increase in my Oxycontin from every 12 hours to every 8 has helped with the pain and increase in my percocet for the break through! But it doesn't stop the spasms and the use of the hand!

Anyway Chart I do know what your going through! I hope somebody can help you! Good Luck to You!........... You have bad knees too? I have had surgery on both of mine! But they have beeen doing pretty well the last few years as long as I don't overly abuse them!

well

I too have mild reversal of the cervical lordosis.... and Straydog is exactly right... most likely from a "whiplash" injury.....

I too have osteophytes or bone spurs.... due to damage done by arthritis...... 5 joints in my neck...

It's good to know a lot of you here have the same problems I do... I'll keep and eye open for your posts

The good news is my second epidural is providing me temporary pain free mornings for about an hour or so right after getting out of bed.... it's awesome!

Whitebeard... are you on any muscle relaxers to help with your spasms?

YEP! I take 25mg of Baclofen every 8 hours except at 10PM I take 30mg of it. It helps allot, as I get muscle spasms every where! and I mean everywhere! But sometimes these ones in my neck just don't pay attention to my meds! But they would be more frequent and much worst if I wasn't on the Baclofen! I am hoping that the Neurosurgeon will be able to help me, if not my pain Doctor said he would try looking at and maybe doing something else!
I have so many other disc and osteophytes that cause me problems throughout my spine,the osteo arthritis is spreading out and some of my fingers on my right hand are starting to get knobby and I can't straighten them out flat !But of all that, this left arm and this gagging seems to be, by the worst of all the other stuff!

You know I feel so extremely bad for Chart and Pete everybody! and especially "" my family here at this forum which is all of you!"" that has neck and back problems!, I myself sleep in a "fowlers position" as I can not lay flat or stand up straight! I stand bent over and I lean a bit to the right, (probably in more than in just physical way {smile})

Draka and WhiteBeard
y'all are lucky to be able to take the muscle relaxers, I had to be taken off them as they dried me out
and with the asthma & sjogren's it made it so hard for me to breathe at night, but they did help, I've been taken
off a lot of meds due to the drying effects and it's an on again off again with the clarinex (antihistamine), the
sjogrens' just makes things more interesting I guess..

Thank you WhiteBeard, sleeping can be a problem, last night I had to make my husband leave the room,
when he tosses, turns and snores it's so hurtful! but I don't tell him that..he needs to be in a sleep study
but won't make an appointment and this year he's had so much time off too so maybe next year..
I sleep mostly on my right side with a pillow between my legs and eventually fall to sleep around 2 or
3 a.m. and wake around 8 a.m. We care about you too WhiteBeard! so Thank You...

Thank You Susie the info really helps,

Would be nice if we could go back in time and stop the car accident from occuring all together..
I so wanna whine and says I'm only 43, but then. sorry about the rant....
Maybe that would make a good topic for Chutz daily questions, if you could change two things in our lives...
Hey Whitebeard hope your getting people in to see your house!

My best treatment to date so far has been the Botox injections...... the relief it provided from the constant pulling and spasms was wonderful!

WONDERFUL

The shots aren't fun.... I think I got 10-12 of them in my whole neck.... upper shoulder area.

My PM Dr says I can get them again in August..... lately I can feel the spasms and tightness starting up again.....

The only down side was I really felt a loss of strength on the side (right) most effected by the spasms

Chartreux we are close in age.... I am 41.

My Doctor reserves the Botox injections for cash patients only and my insurance won't cover them..
I knew about the Botox back in February and it can help better than steriods, but here if your
not rich you can't get them..

My heart goes out to all those that can't get the procedures as they are either too expensive or
insurance refuses to pay for them, even when they've been proven to help and I'm not refering to just Botox...

Thank You Draka, I'm so glad you have something that helps and look forward to, sure hope they
continue to help you!
good luck to you in August...maybe physical therapy could help you gain some strength back..
Keep us posted on those injections...

(((((((((((((((((((((((((Draka))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

my car accident was in 1997 and I've had the chronic low back pain since, I was on Naproxen for so long,
that I finally asked my pcp for a pain management doc three years ago, just part of my story, The girl turned
left into us and failed to stop at the stop sign, I remember the point of impact and then was blank for about 2 minutes..
she was 16 no drives licence or permit and I was taken away by ambulance and next day, they called us to say they didn't know
if their insurance was going to cover it..not "how are you", the girl ended up with 2 tickets and her parents ended up
with 2 tickets, anyways I try to keep forgiving them as..I thought I had forgiven them, I hope they are doing good....

Char, I hear ya about the accident. My neck problems and TMJ started with a car accident. I was at a stop behind a car stopped for a red-light. Guy came up behind me doing 45 never hit the brakes, hit me instead. I could not get out of the way, looked up & saw him coming knowing I was going to be hit. I stiffened up and planted my feet on the brakle. The guy and a passenger took off on foot, they were illegals and we located the owner. Of course not she did not have ins. Story of me life. My car was so old, I only had liability. lol

Char (and everyone, really),
Isn't it sad how one moment in time changes a life forever? I guess there are good moments, too, and we tend to forget those, but something like an accident that takes a life that was going in one direction and turns it completely down another path...for me it was a bad fall. And I'll always remember the date it happened. I'm sure many of us have those "dates".

Char, I try to work on forgiveness, too, as what happened to me was preventable had someone done their job and just reported the safety hazard. But I also know the looking back to that point in time doesn't help any. Keeps me stuck. It is so hard to really forgive, release, and move forward knowing that our life is forever changed. Just wanted you to know you're not the only one who finds true forgiveness a challenge, a long process that has to be repeated over and over again.

Hugs,

PaLady

Char, sorry I'm not trying to jack your post here but >> WB, the description of the pain on the left side and everything else except the Lar>spazms sounds almost identical to my symptoms prior to my surgery in March!!! Right down to the last 3 fingers!!! I'm happy to say that my nero cured all those sympoms on the left side but now> or should I say ever since I fell in that hole at work a couple of months ago, the pain has completely changed and stedilly gotten worse! Any kind of physicall activity can set it off and drive me right up the pain scale almost instantly. It starts right about where my neck meets my shoulders and travels down my spine. When it gets real bad, it can radiate both up and down and give me a horable head ache! I'm obviously pretty upset because it dosen't seem to be getting any better at all, just worse! I haven't been back to the neuro surgeon in a couple months but might go see him within the next couple weeks. I know there is nothing he can do for me short of another surgery, but I want him to know whats going on since last time I saw him he said don't worry about your fall, everything was fine and it WILL get better soon> WRONG!!! Oh well, you folks know what I'm talking about and how it feels so >>> What should I do now???
Love Yuze Gize!!!

Pete, obviously your Doc was wrong! It is not fine or OK. Keep track of your pain and symptoms and what you were doing when it occurs, put it in a log or journal, and then call your Doctor, make an appointment to see him and,then bring your journal with you. Explain to him all your problems and what is happening, maybe you jarred something and knocked it out of kilter just enough that it is putting pressure on your nerve roots, which can be harder to see than your spinal cord. I would not let it go, as it doesn't appear to be getting any better does it?

I know my pain Doctor doesn't know if the neurosurgeon can help me or not, but he does want her to evaluate me and see if she can do anything. To be honest I am scared as all get out, about the idea of having surgery again! But my left arm is really getting worse, and I am afraid that I could eventually lose the use of it if this continues! The pain is bad now, but I do know how much worse it can be, and I honestly don't know if I could handle that type of pain anymore! I was a much younger and stronger man when I had trouble with my disc in 85, I am much wiser now than I was back then, but still, I am not that 33 or 34 year serviceman in pretty good condition either! I just don't know!

Anyway I do wish you luck Pete, take care of yourself! We will muddle through this, some way! We really don't have any other choice! At least we know we are not alone in all this, and that in its self helps allot!

Char, Pete & White Beard,
I hope all 3 of you can find some options to help with your cervical pain and all the other symptoms it causes.

Pete - I agree with WB about not letting that go. I remember your description of that fall and it didn't sound like just a little trip. Sometimes I think surgeons don't want to deal with further problems because they think their surgery might be considered a failure. I don't know, just my thought. But I recall you were going to a top notch place, and the way your symptoms are worsening I truly hope you can get that all checked out.

WB - I think Frances had mentioned maybe a RF procedure or something along those lines might be an alternative to surgery. I hope you can find something. I know the feeling of not wanting to go through another surgery and recovery process - especially with our spines and it's always "iffy" if the surgey will help.

Hugs to all 3 of you!!

Char, With your description of what the results were no wonder you are in so much pain... I am thinking about you and wishing you a low pain day. I wish there was something helpful that I could say to make you feel better. I do care and I am sorry that you are faced with this..

PaLady,Pete,WhiteBeard,Susie,Char(and everyone!), I wish that none of us were facing the life of chronic pain that we are facing each and everyday. It just isn't right to have to live each and every day this way. But the one good thing, if there is anything good out of any of this, is that we all have one another to lean on and draw strength and encouragement from in the hard times. I am forever grateful for each and every one of you, that you are my family and in my life. It does make this situation better. I care about all of you so much. And when I read your posts and your problems, I always wish and hope that I could do something or say something to make it better for you. I am rambling again... I guess since I don't know what to say that makes sense. Just wanted you all to know.

Thank You
Pete, WhiteBeard, Anice, PaLady and everyone...
Your all great friends and I'll keep my hopes that we'll all have painfree days, with all
the advances in medical science, it'll happen and I wanna send y'all lots
and lots of soft hugz..
my ear infection is not clearing up so I'll go back on monday to pcp, then
pm doc on tuesday, endorinologist on weds and pt and pain management psychologist on Friday..

But my hubby pulled off a fast one yesterday and filled out the paperwork and we'll be adopting
another kitten, is 1/2 russian blue, so keep your fingers crossed we're supposed to bring him home today
his name will be Dimitri so with him we'll have a total of 3 beautiful little boys..we already have Chancellor (black) and
Remington, (my snowshoe mix). WOW was I surprised by my hubby...But he knows that' it'll help when our
daughter leaves for college in August and I just can't handle the trip so I'll have to says my farewells from home..
and we're trying to get in on the $39.00 tickets to get her, our daughter, home for Christmas, but we couldn't buy them yet to far
in advance.

Awe, Char, the kitty sounds so sweet! I don't know all the breeds like you do, but any kitten is adorable to me. I know at the shelter there have been some of the rarer breeds (or at least a mix) brought in recently, but they're usually adult cats. I kind of love the look of a Maine Coon but boy wouldn't want the maintenance!

I looked at your scheduled for the week with appointments and thought if only people knew how regular this is for many of us. Course not having health insurance takes care of that rather quickly! LOL (sort of)

So I'm kind of glad you're getting the kitty to balance things out - as long as you don't think it's too much for you. Sounds like not! And I love the names!!

Anice - BTW your post also brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for putting into words how many of us feel about our family!
