MRI Results - Need some (a lot) of Help to understand!
I have been suffering from back and neck pain for more than five years and after massage, chiropractor, physio and acupuncture as well as the usual pain relievers both over the counter and prescribed, I am in just as much pain as ever and am so frustrated. The following are my MRI results and I'm just wondering if someone could help translate them for me. Thanks so much for your time!
At C2-3, mild stenosis of the right neural foramen.
At C3-4, both neural foramina are mildly stenotic.
At C6-7, is a small osteocartilaginous bar. The central spinal canal is mildly stenotic.
In the thoracic spine, there is mild to moderate narrowing of the T3 to T5 disc spaces and moderate narrowing of the T6 to T8 disc spaces. The T8 to T12 disc spaces are also mildly narrowed. At T7-8, there is a small midline disc herniation slightly indenting the thecal sac.
I am also experiencing numbness in my fingers on my left hand which I'm not sure is related but thought I'd mention.
