Severe spinal cord compression at C2-3 with disc extrusion. Anyone?

Hi folks,

After 6 years of a "possible MS" diagnosis, someone thought to do an MRI of my entire spine, and the subject line tells you the most severe thing they found. I guess I'm pretty scared regarding the possible progression of what can happen. I've had urinary retention problems, weakness in the legs, falls, numbness and tingling in my face, some wavy vision...at any rate. It scares me that this is up so high in my spine. I have DDD at T6, 7, and 8, as well as "moderate spinal cord compression" at C5-6. I'm only 45 years old. Is it inevitable that this is surgical? It sounds dramatic, but I'm terrified this will paralyze me... Anyone have this experience with C2-C3?
