    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

    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.

    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
    ?https://www.mychiro.com.my/articles/ligamentum-flavum-hypertrophy/
    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 )?
    Thanks

    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.
