In the last 10 days ,i started to feel needles also in the trunk and on the front of the neck,in inside of the mouth ,also blood pressure up and down , purse hard also up to average 110 before one week (for 3 days and) blood pressure up to 170-190 sys and DIA 105-125 for 4-5 days them very change very fast from high to normal in few minutes in rest .
ALSo more often started to feel tingling in lower extremity Very more often ,and also more weakness in lower extremity, even i can walk 2-3 km also walking with no wide base , but legs are week ,and impossible to go fast (what i can normally in past before 4 months )
This all symptoms cam be caused by hypertrophy ligament flavum of c3-4 mostly
See please MRI before 3 weeks show compress on the (cord of left center posterior https://youtu.be/qDlsWaqQP0oDonald Corenman, MD, DCModeratorFebruary 21, 2022 at 12:03 pmPost count: 8468
I discussed your films with a neuroradiologist. He agrees that the ligamentum flavum was disrupted and “bunched” but that it is not causing cord compression. That is also my opinion. Surgical decompression of this problem it not advised as the risks of surgery outweigh the potential benefits. There has to be another undiagnosed cause of your current symptoms.

Thanks dr corenman
This is not called compression
This is from November middle MRI
SEE please i do measurements of the cord https://youtu.be/qDlsWaqQP0o
This is very important to know if this causes my symptoms before the option to treat.
U can call me i m available if this not called compression
And also thoracic Spine i send to you also not evidence of compression.meni learnParticipantFebruary 21, 2022 at 2:27 pmPost count: 205
So all of symptoms that progress over stages in last 3 months : the tingling , needles ,the harder to go fast for free months,2 times falling , needles also in last 10 days also on the trunk
Checked be nerologicst : before 5 days
Hyperreflexia in 2 legs easy clonuse in legs ,hyper in right hand, Hoffman right side, termner r .
With the MRI u don’t see contacted to my symptoms , reflex , image .meni learnParticipantFebruary 21, 2022 at 2:59 pmPost count: 205
Very important not to do any surgery if this not contact to the problem
Also by remove the ligament flavum one are very important to stability of cervical spine structure
Can causes instability of verterbral colom
If not needed ,also other risk of the surgery.
But to protect the spinal cord it is very important not matter what !
If It is causes the problem what is the best treatment for this .
physical Therapy in this stage if ligament causes problems i can reverse the process ,or stopped him for advanced
Them say what are the symptoms of hypertrophy ligament flavum in the neck ,and think that surgery it is the last option and says that most hospital in the world recommended laminectomy because them don’t know how to treat this conservative
U r also have D.C in your early career
u treated people with ligament flavum hypertrophy in the neck region the are symptomatic (and also very important them have degeneration of the disc on the front related to cumulative disc )?

You do have upper motor neuron symptoms which can be caused by many neurological conditions including MS and Lyme disease. I measured your canal and it measures between 1.2 to 1.4 cm (Normal) and there is no signal changes in the cord. I understand your concern but my opinion and the radiologist’s too is that surgery would not help.
