C4 nerve (C3-4 level) can cause side of the neck pain and inferior jaw pain which includes the throat but this would be an unusual presentation. C4 radiculopathy should not cause mouth pain. None-the-less, a selective nerve root block of the C4 nerve root with temporary relief of symptoms would help to indicate that this root irritation is at least causing some of the symptom origins.

Thank you Dr Coleman ..I enjoy watching your videos very informative.your amaxing ….This is my actual MRI report
My MRI report says this
The cerebellar tonsils are in normal location
Thin Nonexpanasile area of highT2 Signal seen at the level of C5 C6, There is a disc desiccation involving all cervical discs , similar compared to previous.
C2-C3 ..No central canal or neural foraminal stenosis
C3-C4 Mild posterior osteochondral with partial effacement of the anterior CSF..No central canal or neural foraminal stenosis
C4-5 No central canal or neural foraminal stenosis
C5-C6 Posterior osteochondral bar with partial effacement of the anterior CSF..No central canal or neural foraminal stenosis
C7-T1 No central canal or neural foraminal stenosis
No central canal or neural foraminal stenosis
Similar appearance compared to previous.This includes nonexpansile thin high signal centrally within the cord at level C5 C6 , POSSIBLY a small syrinx as well as some degenerative change described
My symptoms is alot off nerve pain and inflammation inside my mouth and throat and sometimes in the back of my neck but mostly mouth and throat ..If my report says no central canal or foramina stenosis do that mean there’s no impingements ? And how likely can it cause the pain in my mouth and throat .? I get shotting sharp pains as well in my head ..it moves around …but my concern mostly is mouth and throat ..the symptoms are exact same in my throat as is in my mouth …but at time my mouth will still have constant nerve pain 24-7..Thank you again I truly appreciate your advice and opinion very muchLaura1963ParticipantOctober 27, 2018 at 11:25 pmPost count: 9
Dr Corneman when the report says similar do that actually mean same as previous report or do it mean similar but not identical that it could be some changes ..Just don’t know if there’s an actual slight change from previous report done in June or it’s exact same ..Thank youDonald Corenman, MD, DCModeratorOctober 28, 2018 at 5:49 pmPost count: 6438
According to the radiologist, you have no nerve or cord impingement. This means that your symptoms could not originate from the neck. You might have trigeminal neuralgia, a neurological condition of the fifth cranial nerve. A visit to a neurologist or ENT doc would be in order.

Thank you again …i seen an neurologist he said it’s not trigeminal nerve damage as all the symptoms I have in my mouth and throat is wide spread entire body …it started after I cold turkey off a medication that I should of never put on in the first place was given Klonopin for four and half months for menopause symptoms never been on any medication in my entire life before that or after cold turkey off 2mg and after 2 months on it I started to get these symptoms didn’t realize it was from that drug ..My mouth throat neck shoulders and biceps are extremely stiff since never had this ever in my entire life prior to that drug …I just needed to rule out if any of this was from my neck ..Thank you so much for ruling this out ..it gives me a piece of mind …I am so grateful for your expert advice and opinion ..thank you again …I recommend others to go to your website and watch your you tubes …
