Ok from Objective:
The Cervical MRI scan demonstrates degenerative changes with Spondylosis extending from C2-C7. The is straightening of the normal cervical lordosis. There is a left sided disk osteophyte complex at C3-4 causing mild left forming narrowing. There are midline disk osteophyte complexes extending from C3 to T1 with mild narrowing of the central canal.
C2-3: CANAL is 11.3 mm
C3-4: CANAL is 9.5 mm
C4-5: CANAL is 10.6 mm
C5-6: CANAL is 10.8 mm
C6-7: CANAL is 9.5 mm
I guess I should have asked what normal canal space is..
I actually went in for back pain which I have had on and off for years.
Thoughts? I didn't really hurt until he told me what was wrong with me.. LOL
now discomfort is noticeable.
I am currently 255. I know with my back pain it radiates down to my left leg. and I have no reflux in left angle with numbness in last 2 toes on left foot.
I lose weight and then gain it back. but I know when I am below 245 my leg pain is not there. I have read that losing 4 lbs relieves 15 lbs pressure on your spine. whether that is true or not I do not know..
