| | Bilateral Uncovertebral Joint Spondylosis
Help - Looking for information,
Brief History - I have had pain,tingling, numbness in my arms for the past 7 years - doctors diagnosed me with carpal tunnel syndrom, and tendinitis - each time - about a year and a half ago I was reaching for something and my left arm went completly numb, this scared me so I researched it and finally went to a Chiropractor - after about 2 weeks of adjustments I started feeling better. I felt much better. But after awhile , my adjustments were not staying - and I began getting more pain in both sides of my upper body. My Chiropractor ordered an MRI thinking I may have more problems than initially thought -
My Chiropractor did go over the results with me - but I am still not sure about some things, my Report is as follows:
Moderate degenerative changes at C5-6 With bilateral spondylosis resulting in severe bilateral neural forminal encroachment, with compressed C6 nerves within the neural formina bilaterally.
Moderate degenerative changes at C6-7 resulting in severe left neural forminal encroachment with compressed left side nerve within the neural formina.
Mild kyphosis for the cervical spine suggesting muscular spasm."
My MRI says "demonstrates bilateral uncovertebral joint spodylosis" I cant really find any information on this particular condition. I find spondylosis - but not pertaining to this specific condition - also when I made my apponitment to see the Neurologist they made if for six weeks from now - is that to long to wait to see someone with the findings in my report.
Thanks for any help!
