    Question parasthesia & burning

    I have a c5-6 disc herniation and a compression of T8-9 on my latest mri. i have had parasthesia, burning, and tingling on left side from foot to upper back area. My cervical herniation is on right side of cord so i don't understand the left side symptoms. does anyone have any suggestions??? could it be all stemming from the c5-6 herniation or does it have something to do with t8-9 compression??? i don't see my dr to go over results for 6 more days. please help if you can.

    Re: parasthesia & burning

    what exactly does it state on your MRI in that summary at the very end where they list all the bigger issues?when you stated 'compression',are you referring to actual cord compression?if your actual cord is being compressed i would be willing to bet,based on symptoms that your T spine issue is what is most likely causing your symptoms.this does sound more like the type of symptoms from actual cord compression and not the basic radiculopathy you would be feeling from just spinal nerve involvement.believe me, i have both cord damage and also a c spine mess i am dealing with and for the most part,i can usually tell just by the types of symptoms which area is triggering "todays" everchanging wierdness.if the extent of your c spine issues is limited to the spine and not involving the actual cod in anyway,the T spine really would be much more likely to cause symptoms way down to where you are having them.is your t spine compression central or lateral to the left side moreso than right?it just usually would state in your MRI which side the more compressed areas are located.

    if you could just post what the summary portion of your MRI states it would really help alot to better define whats going on.just who or what type of specialist will you be consulting with?or have you not gotten that far yet?having actual cord compression really does need a good experienced neurosurgeon to give the best results in most cases.you need to find one tho who actually has training enough to be allowed within that cord space,not all are allowed to even go there(this also depends on just how severe that compression actually is too).it depends more on what their particular specialtys are.please keep me posted as to whats going on,K?good luck,marcia

    things criss cross... so if your herniation or compression etc. is on right side then usually you will have symptoms on left etc.

    Re: parasthesia & burning

    i believe that only happens up in the brain area.the cord is pretty straightforward.whatever side gets the damage in the spinal column,that will be the side with the problems.the actual criss cross area happens much further up and into the skull base area,not within the spine itself.when it comes to the spine,what you see is what you get pretty much,as far as symptoms go anyways.Marcia

    Re: parasthesia & burning

    thank u for responding. my t-spine stated a slight disc bulging is present at T8-9 compressing the thecal sac(what is this???) to a mild degree with no intrinsic cord abnormalities. i also have ventral bony ridging at T11-12 causing minimal fecal sace impingement(what is this)?? do u think my left side parasthesia and numbness is caused by this or my C5-6 herniation??. i am seeing an orthopedic spine specialist on monday to discuss surgery. do u think i also need to consult with a nerusurgeon?? i have consulted with one in the past concerning my neck but haven't done so since 2001. thank u so much for your feedback. i can see u are very experienced with this. thank u, selena.
