Cervical Spinal Stenosis and numbness. Is it possible that I could develop paralysis ?

Recovering from whiplash . Doctors stated that complications are due to RSD or cervical spinal stenosis . Have extreme numbness in arm and leg. Have a 2.5-3 mm central disk herniation with mild impingement on the ventral cord surface and mid AP canal diameter is reduced to 9 mm. Should I be concerned about the numbness? Is it possible that I could develop paralysis?
