Symptoms Update

Postby misterjuanperalta on May 6th, 2015, 2:57 am

Hi All,

My MRI shows a degenerative pathology throughout my entire spine, per the neurosurgeon's office. With that said, attributing twitching to that alone is premature. Thanks

A degenerative pathology throughout the entire spine? What could that be?

Inflammatory.....have you ever been on cortisone? And if so, did that help you at all?

I have multi-level stenosis, foraminal and central canal narrowing, arthritis, decreased signals in some areas and affected ventral subarachnoid space in thoracic spine. The highest narrowing is 50% and ascending. No cortisone. No metabolic illnesses identified yet. I suspect to have hypoparathyroidism, because of these symptoms: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=21608#p162436

Have you been on any thyroid therapy? If so, has it helped?

What about trying cortisone to see if that helps with anything?

The things happening in your back sound significant.
