MRI scan showing bulge resulting in effacement of the ventral thecal sac and mild central stenosis. Suffer from blurred vision. Are these related?

I have recently been having a lot of problems with my left arm all the way down to my fingers. I have a plate in my neck covering c6-c7-T1 and the MRI stated I have a 3mm bulge resulting in effacement of the ventral thecal sac and mild central stenosis . Is this what is causing it? I am also haing issues very recently with blurred and double vision . could this be caused by this issue.. They also commented on the MRI that there was some increased signal intensity within the cervical cord in the region (C4-C5) is noted n the sagittal T2 weighted sequence

Thanks for the query,

I understand your problem

Your problem in the left arm are related to the MRI changes that you have described. Cervical spondylosis can cause these symptoms. Regarding blurring of vision, I do not thin that it is related to the MRI changes. Causes of blurred vision are many and it would require joint evaluation by neurologist and eye specialist so as to establish the cause and deal with it.

Hope this helps
