Here is my MRI
Cervical spine- early spondylo disco degenerative changes seen, postulasr annular tear in C5-C6 disc, diffuse posterior and bilateral foraminal C5-C6 disc bulge withe arly poteacentral early disc protrusion
impinging thecal sac
and indenting bilateral netral foramen contents, hydrosyrinx from C6-D3 vertebra likely.
Dorsal- Disco degenarative changes in dorsal spine, mild prominensce of central spinal canal
from level of D6 to D9 vertebra- milk mydrosyrinx likely.
Lumbar- L5-S1 disc dessication with mild diffuse bulge/pseudobulge of the disc, mild L5 over S1 retrolysthesis is noted.
My question really is based on a problem I faced with my hamstring
last year. I was running, following the correct procedure of warmup, stretch and then run, and on my first step I felt something catch in my left leg near the hamstring. Not sure what it was, I continued with yoga
(at that point normal Hatha Yoga at home) with a lot of hamstring stretches to fix what appeared to be a catch in my hamstring. The basic feeling was that my hamstring (top 4-5 inches) felt heavy suddenly. This was a year ago, now I have been practicing Iyengar yoga regularly. Some days I am ok, some days my left leg (affected one) feels like deadweight. Except the feeling of deadweighted-ness follows on to my calf as well now and sometimes I get a low level pins and needles feeling on my whole left leg. No pain however.
Can you'll please help me figure out what I should do? My physio says that my hamstring is fine because there is no pain and the range of motion is shorter on the left side than the right but it is ok. He said it is a weak obturatur externus muscle, and thus isn't the muscle isn't holding up my hamstring and the weakness is probably aggravating a nerve
. He also says it will take a couple of months for the exercises to show any change. I am continuing to do exercises prescribed by my physio to strengthen the obturator externus. Any other opinions?
