I’m 36 with a long history of shoulder pain and more recently, neck pain with radicular symptoms. Tingling down my left side, shooting pain down my left side, numb fingers sometimes, burning sensation in toes sometimes. Sore neck.
My CT showed a number of spurs. MRI referral (querying C6 was made). Report says there is tight foranimal narrowing at C5/C6 due to a large spur. “essentially complete effacement of the L foramin at C5/C6 with compression of the existing rootlet”. Did not show other compromises and said canal and R foramen are paten. I feel so young for this. Could it be caused by an injury about the neck and in others’ experiences are they likely to recommend surgery?
