    "Foraminal Spurring"

    Good "early" morning, everyone. I usually post in the "back problems" board, but now I am having severe pain in my neck, which is also causing migraines. I had a MRI on Monday and received the results yesterday. I basically have DDD in my cervical, as well as my lumbar spine. I have 3 herniated discs (in my cervical spine) and had a question about "foraminal spurring at C4-C5". Does anyone have this or know what it means? I really appreciate everyone's time and hope everyone enjoys a "pain free" day!

    Sincerely, Tam

    I have spurring at C6, they told me this is a bony protrusion on the vertebrae. It may cause some symptoms depending on where it is and if it's pinching on anything.

    I had severe spurring pressing into my cord causing all kinds of problems. They can be very bad or nothing.....Mine were bad effect my arm and fingers. I really do not know what was worse actually because I also had to herniated discs. I have had them shaved off twice now. Yes they are bone growths and they can get worse with time.

    Spurring is usually bone spurs (osteophytes) - and often are symptomatic if they are impinging the nerves in any way.
