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.
