Worried about losing use of dominant hand
Hi I just want to check what I should be asking for from doctors as I have received dreadful treatment in the past. I have spondylosis and stenosis throughout my spine due to congenital spine defects. Had lumbar spinal fusion 4 years ago where they also discovered I had multiple pedicles fractures. They then found cervical stenosis and scan from a few years ago showed multi level degenerative changes in cervical spine c4-5 osteophyte bar causing mild anterior moulding of the theca, degenerative narrowing of left c5 neural exit foramen, similar change c5-6 with degenerative left exit foranimal narrowing and c6-7 narrowing on both sides. In the last few weeks I have started to get tingling in my left thumb, fingers and palm and some tingling in soles of feet. I have been referred to hospital for nerve tests but I am very worried that this is the start of me losing the use of my arms. I know if it is I will be waiting at least a year for decompression surgery so risk permanent nerve damage. I am really worried about these symptoms. Can you please help in any way?
