I began having neck ache and a super tight sternocleidomastoid muscle on the right side about 1-month ago. I had X-rays and the following diagnosis.
The cervical curve is irregular at C3-C6 on the right
and at C3-C5 on the left.
The cervical lordosis is reduced. The cervical gravity line is shifted
anteriorly. Apparent retrolisthesis of C4 and C5 , (disks slipping fwd)
Disc space narrowing and spondylphyte formation at C2-T1, at least moderate at C4-C6 along with intercalary bone formation.
Uncovertebral hypertrophy at C4 on the left and C5-C7 right but more than left. Facet hypertrophy is also appreciated at C7-T1 on the right.
Since then, this past 3 weeks I've been getting tight temples and pins and needles in jaw line, sporadically. It always seems to happen when I'm sitting down; either reading, watching TV or when I am on my Mac..or IPhone.
The tight temples feel like a tight band, that suddenly comes and then goes. If I'm up and about, walking or out shopping or out with friends, I do not seem to get this odd feeling.
Can someone shed a light on this? Is it nerve roots that are being pinched? I have another appointment with my Osteopath when I get back from my holiday but I thought I ask in this forum in the meantime.
