I have back problems. Here are my symptoms:
Pain all the way down the outside of my left arm, left 3 fingers and arm goes numb, right hand and arm go numb off and on.
Pain in left shoulder and neck.
Pain between shoulder blades (pain gets worse when I cough or sneeze and if standing up makes my knees buckle).
Pain lower back
Pain down back of right leg into foot and with in minutes of sitting right leg goes numb.
Having a hard time urinating, have to really push to start then not much comes out, have to go tot he bathroom all the time.
I’ve had an MRI of my c-spine and l-spine and it shows:
C5-6 Facet Hypertrophy, no stenosis
C6-7 Facet hypertrophy right grater than left, broad-based disc bulge, and uncovertebral hypertrophy right grater then left. There is a right foraminal encroachment, no stenosis visible.
L4-5 Mild concentric disk bulge with shallow midline protrusion, and mild facet hypertrophy, giving bilateral foraminal encroachment. No frank stenosis
L3-4 Concentric disc bulge, with a small midline disc protrusion, facet hypertrophy, and relatively narrow spinal canal. Ventral CSF is near completely effaced, with thecal sac cross-section 0.8cm AP by 1.5cm left right. There is right foraminal encroachment.
Is it possible that the problem is a disc bulge in my T-spine?
