    Hi Doc.
    When there are multiple levels of stenosis present on both sides of the cervical spine (c6-7, c5-6, c4-5), is it possible to experience bilateral arm pain that presents itself with somewhat of a similar symmetry?

    Stenosis could be central stenosis which affects the spinal cord (normally with myelopathy symptoms-not arm pain) and foraminal stenosis which affects arm symptoms. Bilateral arm pain would be more likely from foraminal stenosis.
