looking to find out what my results mean i am a male 51 years of age I have had diziness , neck andright arm pain, pins and needles in my right hand hand . It is worse in the morning having slept, and worse if I drive for a prolonged period also using a computer mouse for periods makes it worse .
I paid for an MRI scan myself because of the time the nhs was taking plus pressure from work and OH Assist (Atos) I have been off for 9 months as my job involves wearing heavy body armour and a heavy armoured helmut which all weight alot .
The results are as follows
All spine regions normal apart from
MRI Cervical Spine which states
There are early degenerative changes at C5/C6 . At this level there is dehydration of the disc with early osteophyte formation. There is a minimal posterior disc bulge. There is mild narrowing of both exit foramina due to disc osteophyte complex
Normaol cervical Cord remaining discs normal.
Conlusion there is early degeneration at C5/C6 and a appointemt with a spine surgeon might be appropriate dependent on the symptons.
I havean appointment with a consultant tomorrow
