Diagnosed with cervical spondylosis and early spinal stenosis. Have posterolateral disc herniation and facet joint degeneration

Hi, I have been diagnosed with cervical spondylosis and early spinal stenosis at level C3/C4 and C4/C5. Also there is a posterolateral disc herniation with severe impingement of the right lateral recess and exit foramina at level C5/C6 which is aggravated by neurocentral and facet joint degeneration. Also have herniation at L5/S1 with annular tear. I am 36 years old and female what does this all mean. I have random patches of goosebumps that appear down my arm, is this related to my neck and back problems?

Based on details you have cervical and lumbosacral spondylosis with discs at multiple levels.

There is no relation between goosebumps and neck and back problem.Impinged nerve secondary to spinal disc leads to neuralgic symptoms like burning pain,and numbness.

Hope this will help you
