Thank you for your question.
From the symptoms you have described I strongly feel it is a manifestation of cervical stenosis and myelopathy
. What stenosis means is the vertebral canal in the neck that contains spinal cord
is narrowed. It happens due to age related changes in spine in some people. When there is even trivial trauma to the neck the spinal canal
can not move freely in already narrowed canal and gets compressed leading to weakness in arms and legs. Some recovery is seen most of the times and may continue for months.
MRI of the cervical spine
(neck) is recommended and consultation with a spine surgeon
Please let me know if I can be of any help.
