    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.
