Results from mri and opinion
I have been having tingling in fingers for years but never when I am asleep nor do I awake with it. It only occurs after I am up and around. It is in both hands and on and off.
I had an emg and the needle one and it found carpal tunnel and cubical tunnel in both arms.
I also had an mri of the cervical spine and c4 5 and c6 were problematic. Moderate spinal stenosis and severe at c6. Surgeon wanted to do surgery on neck and both arms. I did not want to do surgery. What would you recommend?Hello Kristi,
You have clearly had an old neck injury, probably a long time ago. Have you fallen off horses or had a car accident?
Do you still have only have tingling and no pain? I'm sure your neck is stiff, but does it hurt?
Do movements of your head and neck bring on the tingling in your fingers?
Which fingers are affected? Be as accurate as possible; this is critical.
When the tingling is bad, what happens if you raise that hand above your head?
Is there any wasting of the big muscle at the base of the thumb, and is there weakness in your hand or of the triceps muscle; it straightens the elbow?
I could not read much of the report, only the conclusions.
When you have given me some answers to the above, I can try to give a more educated response to your questions.
Please be precise in your reply if you want a useful response. Vague answers will mean I cannot contribute much more.
