    Hello. Listen, she needs to see an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in neck and back. or a neurologist surgeon who specializes in neck and head.

    She needs to do another MRI and also CT.

    Re: saddle block numbness and cervical issues

    Since your daughter has cervical issues, it is probable that there is cord compression that is causing the saddle block numbness. I would urge her to contact her spine specialist. I presume she is under the care of either an orthopedic spine surgeon or a neurosurgeon whose practice is limited to the neck and back.

    There are two issues that can cause numbness in that saddle area. One is a nerve compression in the lumbar area of the spine. However, if her cervical disc herniations are pressing into the spinal cord, it can have an affect on the lower limbs, bladder, bowel, sexual function, etc. Was the recent MRI of the lumbar area? How long ago did she have a cervical MRI?

    Please have her call her spine specialist ASAP.
