Cervical Spine -C5/C6 Nerve compression / entrapment.
After presenting to neurologist for review with right brachialgia and arm weakness noting # radiologically showing multilevel cervical spondylosis with forminal stenosis, most marked at C5-C6 but also at C4-C5 to the right.
There is evidence of acute denervation involving C5 and C6 myotomes (and not readily encompassed by a single segmental level).
The periphheral nerve studies are essentially normal.
The above situation has been going on for approx 2 months with slow
progress with physical therapy i.e. arm weakness about the same - noticing atrophy of bicep and shoulder muscle - deltoideus posterior, shoulder muscle feeling better i.e. not as numb -feels sensitive.
Neck movements -right side when stretching is still sore at or near end range, no other pain, and have good sleep pattern.
Question # How long ( approximate time frame ) if persistent pressure is upon nerve roots for permanent damage to nerve / muscle group i.e. is nerve related muscle atrophy reversable ?
Is surgical decompression the only option ?
