    focal myelomalacia

    I just got my results from an MRI- which stated I had mild to moderate degenerative disc disease- most pronounced in C5-C6 where there is moderate neural foraminal stenosis on the right, moderate central canal stenosis, and focal myelomalacia- I have 2 middle fingers on the left hand that are tingling constantly. I always have lower back pain and I have a sciatic nerve that flares every 1 - 2 months and last for at least 2 weeks of pain, and can barely walk.

    Re: focal myelomalacia

    Welcome to the board. I would suggest you make an appointment with a spine specialist, if you haven't done so. This can be either a fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon or a neurosurgeon whose practice is limited to the neck and back. One of these two specialists is the best place to go for an,accurate diagnosis and plan for treatment.

    Did you have a lumbar MRI as well as one of the cervical spine?
