    Cervical Stenosis Symptoms?

    Hi all. I have had a number of surgeries on my cervical area. Recently they found that I now have Stenosis in the cervical area from C3-6 levels. They are afraid to do more surgery on the neck area due to past surgeries.

    But I am experiencing some problems and I am thinking it is related to the stenosis. I find I have a real stiff neck at times/lack of mobility. I also have shoulder pain; and at times I am getting lightheaded. Plus I am finding that I am losing my balance when walking. I have not fallen yet but I sometimes am unsteady on my feet. The stenosis is not on the central canal but of the foramen.

    Do these symptoms seem to be related to the stenosis? I have gone around and around with pain medications, physical therapy, aqua therapy with no relief. I am worried that the stenosis will progress. It was classified as moderate stenosis. If it progresses then what am I supposed to do?

    Thanks for any input.
