Brief Answer:
Need to exclude a cervical cord disease

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

Based on your symptoms, I would like to exclude a cervical cord disease. The most common problem is compression of the spinal cord in cervical region by a slipped disc. This can be clarified after we get the MRI reports.

Other causes of this problem can be a tumor or infection in the cervical spinal cord region, however, they are unlikely with your history.

Please keep me informed about the MRI report.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist
