Good day, I have had an MRI in 2007, 2009 and 2014. This is what the prognosis were. Is it normal to be in extreme pain with a so called MRI?
I have radiating spinal pain and pressure, headache on the right side, numbness, tingling and radiating pains in all limbs, right shoulder pain, I could barely walk for 2 straight days. Here are the results. Do these conditions just disappear, cure or heal? I am confused as to why I have so much pain with these results on my recent MRI. It took about 45 minutes from head to lumbar.

Sept 7, 2007
Seven cervical vertebrae are demonstrated and are in good alignment. The vertebral bodies are normal in height. The disc spaces are within normal limits. The marrow pattern is also normal.
C2/C3: There is a small left posterior lateral subligamentous herniation of the nucleus pulposus. Mild left foraminal narrowing.
C3/C4: Minimal left foraminal narrowing, no central stenosis.

C4/C5 : Minimal left foraminal stenosis, the central canal diameter is normal
C5/C6 : Mild left foraminal stenosis , the central canal diameter is normal.
C6/C7: Moderate left foraminal stenosis, secondary to a left posterior and subligamentous herniation of the nucleus pulposus. The central canal diameter is normal.

There is moderate left C6/C7 foraminal stenosis secondary to subligamentous herniation of the nucleus pulposus at this level.
2. Please also note the above description and levels of other associated abnormalities.

MRI of the cervical spine dated 4/2/9.

stable compared with the last exam with some minimal/mild left neural foramen narrowings from uncovertebral disease.

Primary Diagnostic Code: MINOR ABNORMALITY

MRI of the cervical spine without contrast:
Comparison: X-ray-Cervical spine series 10/20/2014

signal intensity is normal. Visualized intracranial contents are within normal limits. Paravertebral soft tissues are within
normal limits.
The following levels were interrogated:
C2-C3: No significant disc disease. No significant spinal canal narrowing or neuroforaminal narrowing.

3 years ago I suffered what they termed sepsis with septic shock with no known cause. As a result I had numbness in the tip of one thumb and on my right forearm. My family doctor ordered tests which revealed a B6 level of 75. Before we could discuss that, I was again stricken with the same symptoms, but did not suffer shock, and this different hospital called it SIRS with no identifiable cause. Following that incident, I had significant muscle weakness in right thumb and left forearm, as well as numbness in my left thumb, left forearm and right and left lower legs, all of which was confirmed by nerve conduction tests. Thought my glucose levels have always tested in the normal range (except when hospitalized, and then I was given insulin for high levels) I occasionally suffer from symptoms commensurate with low glycemic levels--sudden light headedness, shaking and nausea--which I can stop by eating a pack of cheese crackers (just what my body seemed to be craving); and occasional bouts of extreme tiredness. My neurologist ran tests for a large variety of viral and immune conditions, all of which were negative. No doctor has since tested my B6 levels (hate to admit that I just read the original report of high B6 levels a couple days ago). It has been 3 years since my last 'episode' and the numbness persists. Am I possibly suffering from B6 toxicity?

Pyridoxine TOXICITY is unlikely

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for your question regarding B6 toxicity and whether or not your symptoms of numbness in the tip of 1 thumb and right forearm. Without taking much else of your presentation into consideration I would comment that such a...
