Btw, I have also an ulnar nerve compression trauma. Both sides, left more than right. Do you have the referring symptoms, like burning ellbow, pain in wirst, numb 4th and 5th finger in the night or per day?

I just saw this post. My elbow feels funny sometimes up thru my forearm but that's about it

Hi, LKP1231, I was recently diagnosed with a few herniated discs in the cervical region. Still waiting on a lumbar MRI which insurance has yet to approve (but I do know, via x-ray, that there is some compression in the lumbar region.) Did your neurologist say that these disc issues cause the twitching as well as the denervation? I'm hoping that's behind mine but can't get a straight answer.

That's what he said. The second one agreed but said some or all if the twitching could be benign. It's all very confusing.

Confusing. That definitely sums up everything I've been through the last 5+ months. Each neurologist visit is a roller coaster of being told I may have one thing, them changing their minds, then coming back to it again. It was a chiropractor who eventually ordered the MRIs of my back (cervical only one done so far though) and he says these compressions, herniated discs, and spinal cord effacement that I've got could definitely cause these things. However, the general mistrust of chiropractors that is rampant in the "legitimate" medical community is clouding my ability to believe him.

The chiropractor may know more than anyone else.

Down deep inside I feel you are right. Just wish the rest of me would believe it. He's the only one who is willing to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. The neurologist just wants to get the appointment done as soon as he can. My chiropractor even checks my reflexes for me since I had non-existent triceps reflexes in my right arm (I do have a herniation at the C6/C7 that protrudes to the right which he says would cause that.)

Go with the chiro for a while. For back and neck issues, they know what to do. Sounds like the right path.
