Resolved Question:

Dear Doctor,
Hope you can help. I have burning pain in my legs and arms, it comes and goes and it started 10 months after my second son was born via c section and I had spinal block, prior to that in 2012 i had an epidural which ony numbed me half way and the daughter had to be born via c section as well with a spinal block. In total 1 epidural that did not work and 2 spinal blocks. I tie this i to arachnoditist, i have leg pain, crawling in head, sometimes something is pulling, then occasionally pain in my arm and legs. I have MRIs but no contrast MRIs i can show. I am yet to seea nerolgist, but I have stopped sleeping well, worrying about it. Can you please advise? During MRI, it was shown I have a prolapsed disck on my Lumber and the neck disc prolapse as well.
Thank you.

Do you have a report of this MRI ?

No report

Thanks for the information

There is some degree of degenerative changes in the lumbar vertebra in the given images

Arachnoiditis can not be commented on this image as at times it is difficult to pick on MRI

You will need a nerve conduction study and a myelogram for further evaluation

The changes in the lumbar vertebra can be the reason of numbness due to compression on the nerve

Feel free to ask if you need any more information

If done please leave a POSITIVE FEEDBACK with a 5 star rating

OK, if it was lumbar it wuld probably stay in one leg, but I have legs and pains involved with some tinglingin ad burning sensations. do you think arachnoditis is not visible ere because you might need MRI wih gelelium in it for beter res? any think about my neck?
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 1 month ago.

Yes a contrast enhanced MRI would have been a better option

In the given images I can not see clearly any problem in the neck

Feel free to ask if you need any more information

If done please leave a POSITIVE FEEDBACK with a 5 star rating
