Now neuro wants another MRI of thoriac and lumbar because of abnormal evoked potential test of the left foot. My hands and arms have been getting numb and tingly and feeling dizzy vision seems to be shaky when reading. Chiropractor says I should have MRI of the cevical spine thinking any nerve trunk compression could affect any thing below. Anybody have some input.
Hi terlin, Im confused when you say that you have spinal stenosis, grade 2 slippage, L5-S1 disc problems & possible cervical problems with hand & arm nerve compression symptoms. If i were you i would find a spine neurosurgeon or a spine only orthopedic surgeon & take copies of all my MRI's & let that dr do any necessary testing to get to the bottom of all symptoms & rule out nerve compression or find it to make sure that i didnt have cauda equina syndrome or a problem that needs surgery to be fixed & ask him all the questions that you dont have answers to & hopefully one dr could provide answers to all your problems.
