Thanks again for replying
I told him about those symptoms but he was satisfied that because he could not elicit neurological signs and in view of the minor level of cord flattening etc that he should discharge me.
I have to say however that he did not ask me to walk in front of him which I had anticipated would be part of assessment nor examine me on a couch or even touch my neck itself
I beleive that having seen the MRI he did not want to intervene surgically, that no doubt NHS resources and clinical priorities
probably favor more advanced disease, not that he said that. He said ‘I could remove that disk but you would not gain any advantage’
