    Hello
    A recent MRI report revealed findings of “Mass effect upon the anterior thecal sac without significant cord deformity, neural foraminal encroachment or disc protrusion”. The same is for c2-5. Mild mass effect with same description above for C5-6. I was given a provisional diagnosis of “Cervical disc disorder with myeopathy”. The neurosurgeon found nothing structural to repair according to the MRI. I have chronic back pain and radiculopathy verified by EMG/NCV at level L5 and S1. I get tremors in my right leg, and have right leg weakness and at times instability. I get shocks across my back. I recently started getting pins and needles in my left arm, a strain across my left chest, shocks on the left side of neck in the back. Tremors have now started on my left side leg, though minor. Thoracic is normal and brain revealed some plaque. I’m not getting any clear answers or definitive diagnosis. Please help and thank you

    I am confused as to your pain location. You discuss your cervical spine first (“Mass effect upon the anterior thecal sac without significant cord deformity”) but then note lumbar symptoms. What area is the symptomatic region?
