I have numbness in my right knee for the last four years. Now, i started playing Badminton and the numbness radiated up to hip. So, I consulted a Neurologist and advised to have a MRI. MRI findings reveals Cervical Spondylosis - Nerve Compression. So, he recommended for a Cervical Spine Operation to relieve Nerve Compression. However, he referred to a Neuro Surgeon for correct findings. Neuro Surgeon advised the same.
Following is my MRI Findings:
