    Left foraminal stenosis - right arm symptoms

    I have fusions at C4-5(7 years ago) and C6-7 (3 years ago). Recently experiencing pain and weakness in right arm extending to index and middle finger. MRI results show at C3-4 a "severe LEFT-sided foraminal stenosis to a focal disk herniation as well as facet hypertrophy". Can there be any correlation to RIGHT side arm problems? What arm/hand/shoulder areas are associated with nerves at C4?

    Hi Carole.. welcome to the boards. You will get a much greater response by posting on the spine disorders board. This is mainly spineys with lumbar and some thorasic. The other is more dedicated to cervical issues. All the best to you.
