    Hello, i was just wondering if someone can interpret my mri results. Tingling all over not to bad no numbness, probably a herniated disc in my lumbar to. Twitching all over not bad and not really in that much pain. Thank you

    FINDINGS:

    The visualized portions of the cerebellum are normal in signal. The
    cervical spinal cord is unremarkable. There is no myelomalacia,
    gliosis or cystic change.

    The cervical curvature is within normal limits. There are no
    compression deformities or focal bone marrow lesion.

    At C1-C2, the predental space is normal. The dens is intact.

    At C2-C3, and C7-T1, the discs exhibit normal height and signal
    intensity. There is no central canal or foraminal encroachment.

    At C3-C4, there is a circumferential disc bulge which indents the
    thecal sac and partially effaces the anterior subarachnoid space.
    There is no foraminal narrowing. The facet joints are unremarkable.

    At C4-C5, there is a focal posterior central disc protrusion with
    subjacent annular tear indenting the thecal sac and partially
    effacing the anterior subarachnoid space. There is no foraminal
    narrowing. The facet joints are unremarkable.

    At C5-C6, there is a focal posterior central disc protrusion with
    subjacent annular tear indenting the thecal sac and partially
    effacing the anterior subarachnoid space. There is no foraminal
    narrowing. The facet joints are unremarkable.

    At C6-C7, there is a disc bulge which partially effaces the anterior
    subarachnoid space. There is a superimposed disc ridge complex at the
    right uncovertebral joint producing mild right foraminal
    encroachment. The facet joints are unremarkable.

    The prevertebral soft tissues are normal. The retrospinous tissues
    are intact.

    IMPRESSION:

    1. At C3-C4 a circumferential disc bulge partially effaces the
    anterior subarachnoid space.

    2. At C4-C5 and C5-C6, focal posterior central disc herniations with
    subjacent annular tears indent the thecal sac and partially effaces
    the anterior subarachnoid space.

    3. At C6-C7, a disc bulge partially effaces the anterior subarachnoid
    space. A disc ridge complex at the right uncovertebral joint produces
    mild right foraminal encroachment.

    Your symptoms (“Tingling all over not to bad no numbness, probably a herniated disc in my lumbar to. Twitching all over not bad and not really in that much pain”) don’t sound like cord or cervical nerve root problems. You have some mild to moderate degenerative changes in your discs but that would not cause your current complaints. There are other disorders (infectious, nutritional, metabolic) that can cause these symptoms.
