Herniated cervical disk

Three months ago, I was found to have a herniated disk at C5-6 causing left neural foraminal stenosis, a bulge at C6-7, and two mild bulges in the lumbar region. Could they cause the following symptoms:
- Tingling in hands and feet for about a month (gone now for two months) - most affected during posture changes (i.e. crossing legs).

- Aching pain in shoulder blades and both elbows/wrists/forearms

- Joint type pain/cramping in hands

- Small, painless twitches

- Nerve pain in feet, upper thighs and hands

- Cramping in calves

Thanks for any insight you have. I am going through a series of tests!

Re: Herniated cervical disk

The quick answer is yes - I believe the herniated disk can cause all those symptoms - keep us posted.
