report from brain mri:A 5 mm area of mild enhancement centrally in the pons just to the left of the midline is consistent with a capillary telangiectasia. No associated parenchymal signal abnormality surrounding is seen. consider followup mri to assure stability over time.
report from thoracic spine:The canal is patent. The cord demonstrates normal size,position, and signal characteristics. There are no masses within the canal. There are small ventral extradual defects at T1-T2,T2-T3,T3-T4,T4-T5,T5-T6.The largest extradural defects are at T4-T5 and T5-T6, where there is a left paracentral component.These do not cause significant canal stenosis, sac stenosis, or neural foraminal stenosis. There is no cord compression.
report from lumbar spine:Ther is mild disc space narrowing with disc desiccation at L5-S1. remaining disc spaces are unremarkable. posterior elements are intact.Minimal bulging annulus at L5-S1 with no significant canal or neural foraminal stenosis.
I had a surgical fusion in 1997 of C5,C6 and C7.Now I have chronic pain in my neck with shooting/stabbing pain in the middle of my back.I have head pain not normal head aches.Sometimes I have temors that I can't stop.It hurts me to lift 5 pounds, sometimes I can't lift my purse.When I lay down my legs hurt at a number ten lever.The doctor says its just stress and arthritis but I feel like its more.I also have shoulder pain, chest pain, hands hurt, light-headedness,loss of urine,fatigue, and it seems like my memory and thoughts are impaired.I was also told that I have a leak in a heart value which is commom and nothing needs to be done about.I feel like my feelings are controlling my body and if anyone says anything negative to me I get worse what could it be that causes all this physical pain.please help me.I have had a mri of my spine from top to bottom and my brain. Could stress cause me to be disabled?
