    seen a specialist and got told my pain and tingling in my arms and legs are all in my head, and the stone brous feeling in the palm of my right hand. this has all came on sundently after a fall. im a 36year old male.

    MRI CERVICAL SPINE

    Technique: Sagittal Tl, sagittal T2, sagittal STIR, coronal 3D T2 with foraminal
    reconstructions, axial T2.

    Findings:
    Loss of the normal cervical lordosis. Alignment otherwise normal. Preservation of vertebral
    body heights. Mild loss of disc space height generally. Early desiccation at C2/3, C3/4 and

    C4/5 discs. Remaining disc signal is normal. Hae.mangioma within the T2 vertebral body.
    Remaining marrow signal is normal. Cervical cord has normal signal throughout. The central
    canal of the cord is mildly prominent throughout at L2 mm in diameter.

    C2/3: No abnormality.

    C3/4: Shallow right paracentral disc protrusion. The disc abuts and flattens the anterior
    surface of the cord on the right. No cord myelomalacia. Facets have a normal appearance.
    C4/5: Shallow broad based disc protrusion. No neural compression as a result. Facets have
    a normal appearance.

    C5/6: Broad based central and right paracentral disc protrusion. The disc abuts and
    markedly flattens the anterior aspect of the cervical cord. No cord rnyelomalacia. Central
    canal narrowed to 7 mm in AP diameter. Facet joints have a normal appearance.

    C6/7: Shallow disc osteophyte complex. Disc abuts the anterior surface of the cervical
    cord without compressing it. Facets are normal.

    C7 /Tl: Minor degenerative change in the facets.
    Prevertebral and paraspinal soft tissues have a normal appearance.

    Comment:
    CERVICAL SPINE:
    At C3/4 and CS/6, there are central and right paracentral disc protrusions. These
    abut and flatten the anterior surface of the cervical cord on the right. No cord
    myelomalacia. No further area of neural compression throughout the cervical spine.
    Facet joints well preserved.

    THORACIC SPINE:
    Technique: Sagittal T 1, T2 and STIR.
    Findings:
    Vertebral body alignment is normal. Preservation of vertebral body heights. Mild narrowing
    of the T5/6 disc. Remaining disc space heights are preserved. Early desiccation of the
    T5/6 discs. Remaining disc signal is normal. Haemangioma within the T2 vertebral body.
    Remaining marrow signal is normal. No evidence of a recent compression fracture. No disc
    bulge or protrusion. No central canal or foraminal stenosis. Thoracic cord is of normal size
    and signal throughout.

    Thanks for your time.

    Your complaints: “pain and tingling in my arms and legs” and “stone brous feeling in the palm of my right hand”. Did not ever learn what “stone browse” means so you will have to clarify this term for me.

    i am sorry, i miss typed my spelling is not strong, it was ment to be stone bruise, it is there all of the time. my pins and needles come and goes, and my neck painful and feels weak. i also have lower back pain but no muscles are sore, hurts more sitting or laying down. i’ve noticed that i’ve been more clumsy and go off balance now and then and trip now and then.

    Hi Dr Corenman,

    ill give this my best, im not the best wrighter other wise i wouldnt be a trench digger.

    I have dull, aching pain in the base of neck and my head feels heavy this is there 100% of the time 4-VSA, only laying down or chin tucks makes this feel better.

    I have the feeling of a knife stuck between my sholder blades its is there 80% of the time 4-VSA, i cant really get this to go away.

    My lower back just above my hips has a burning aching pain its there 80% of the time 6-VSA, this does go away after doing dubble knee tucks or sitting ford and a really short walk.

    my calfs feel reealy tight and are sore to massage 70% of the time. massage helps out but need to do it once every two days to keeep it away. also have pain that gose deep from my butt down to my leg 20% of the time 8-VSA.

    stone bruise in right palm, its ony there if i am gripping things 100% of the time 3-VSA

    i all so get random tingels in my arms and legs. and standing i get pins and niddles in arms and legs 30% of the time. when i lay down i get p&n in my hand and feet 20% of the time.

    I have noticed that trying to work with real figgity things like little screws or electronics has gotten really frustrating as i drop or cant minulate things well. my keyborad skills have gotten worse miss clicking and hitting wrong keys. my walking i been cliping my toes on the ground about 15% of the time i was volunteering at a animal shelter walking dogs, max 5 hrs a day and would walk 2 to 3 kms through out a day would also sit alot this was ok, but then when i started doing 7hrs and walking 12kms and less sitting i would hurt a lot and just pass out when i went to bed though this was from not doing any thing for 7 months. but after doing this for 3 weeks it got worrse and ened up in bed for 3 weeks.

    and for 9 months when ever i need to use the bathroom its a urgent feeling expecerly for bowl movments. and the other day the wife asked if i deffacated my self becase there was a brown stain on the out side of my shorst and sure engough there was. so now i wonty trust gas, intsted of once a day down i go up to 3 times ive had a colonoscopy and it was clear. i sometimes chock on my saliver and stumble on my words. i thing that most things and i realy hope t his is what you wanted .

    specealest comments:

    DR.A dont go riding your bike or loaders as it will make this worse dont get in to any acerdents or you will could end up in a wheelchair.

    Dr.B you where born like this and there is nothing to worry about it will get better with P.T.

    Dr.C its all in your head and you will have to see a psychologist.

    Dr.D your making this all up and nothing wrong with you at all.

    thanks for your help
