So glad I found your site !!! I have the exact problem you describe in Understanding an MRI in cervical nerve compression, except mine is on the left side. Very little if any neck pain BUT left arm pain, numbness, pins & needles, weakness, & etc. It radiates down my arm into my thumb and index finger. I had an epidural x1 in 2005 with great results, however everything returned gradually over the past 12-18 months. I am scheduled to have another epidural this Friday (05/20/2011). Would like your opinion on the epidural verses going ahead with the surgery to repair/remove the spurs and so on.
Thanks so much for your site — world of information– If I lived closer I’d come see you :)
