The radiologist noted no foraminal stenosis at C5-6 (“At C5-C6, there is a disc bulge indenting the thecal sac”-which is not the nerve hole exit). Maybe he did not feel the need to comment on narrowing of the C5-6 foramen-the hole that the nerve root exits but he did comment on the C2-3 foramen being narrowed.
You note that the EMG “results weren’t good”. What does that mean? Did he find problems or was the test results non-valid?
