mild degenerative changes at C4-C5 and C5-C6

My question is if these degenerative changes can cause muscle weakness in the entire body. There is also at c4-c5 mild effacement  of the the thecal sac with widely patent neural foramina. at c5-c6 there is bilateral  neural formaminal stenosis, mild and right greater than left.

So my question is would there be a possibility that this may be causing some of my symptoms such as muscle wekaness?

    Anything is possible.   Did you ask your doctor about this?

    Personally, I can not see how the problems in your cervical area would impact muscles in your entire body.

    Now, unless because of your cervical situation, you have not been able to do much of anything, then there are good chances that your muscles are getting weaker from lack of activity.
