Hi ive got OA in my right hip and left shoulder ac joint and last year I had surgery on my arm to release a compressed ulnar nerve. As the op didnt solve my nerve problems ive had a neck MRI done which says that at c5 and c6 I have moderate left foraminal stenosis but no evidence of nerve route compression. Im guessjng that this means that my spinal cord isnt compressed but I dont really know what this means.
Does anyone know if stenosis is another way of saying that I have OA in my neck and if not what does stenosis mean? If anyone has cervical stenosis can you let me know what symptoms you have please? Its taken a long time to finally get a diagnosis but nobody is explaining to me in simple terms what these results mean.
