Spine and Back Health
What can cause cervical pain, leg weakness??
What conditions could cause cervical pain, profound (on a scale of 0-10) unpainful tingling in lumbar region/right butt cheek), and bilateral thigh weakness? If lab tests ruled out Ankylosing spondylitis and MRI revealed mild stenosis in C7-T1/mild degeneration in upper thoracic discs, what else could cause almost debilitating cervical pain, tingling, and severe tingling in lumbar region if not controlled by Neurontin?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. On this site, we try to answer general questions about health but cannot diagnose or recommend treatment. There are too many conditions to list here that can cause the types of symptoms you are describing, and without being to do a full neurological examination I cannot tell you what things should or should not be considered. You need to be evaluated by a neurologist. Good luck.
