started with a physical therapist told me to stregthen core and gave me a simple program to follow not crazy lifts but lately I been getting BOTH LEFT ARM AND LEG tingling numbness with NO PAIN.... what could have happen I don't lift heavy and have been working on stregething program.

my MRI :.....



At the C2/3 and C3/4 levels, the disk spaces are maintained. The disks are well hydrated with no evidence of herniation. The neuroforamina are patent
.
At the C4/5 level, the disk space is maintained. The disk is well hydrated. A 1.5 mm disk herniation is seen with an annular fissure (sequence 102, image 6) encroaching on the anterior subarachnoid space and both neuroforamina. Mild anterior vertebral spurring is noted.

At the C5/6 level, the disk space is maintained. The disk is well hydrated. A 1 mm disk herniation is seen encroaching on the anterior subarachnoid space and both neuroforamina. Mild anterior vertebral spurring is noted.

At the C6/7 level, the disk space is maintained. The disk is well hydrated. Posterolateral bulging of the disk is seen to the right with foraminal encroachment.

At the C7/T1 level, the disk space is maintained. The disk is well hydrated with no evidence of herniation. The neuroforamina are patent.
IMPRESSION:

DISK HERNIATION AT C4/5 AND C5/6 LEVELS. 2. DISK BULGE C6/7 LEVEL.

I had a herniated disk that was pinching a nerve and caused tingling & numbness in my left hand. Eventually the numbness went half way up my arm to around my elbow. I let it go to long & it actually damaged my left hand to the point I lost some use in it & my thumb won’t open fully (no hitch hiking for me). Don’t put it off, address it & take care of it if that ends up being the issue.

Stay on it, as it only gets worse, I am scheduled to have C5,6 and 7 fused with a stbilizer installed my left arm and hand are numb and or tingly 24/7 for months and months now, gotta get fixed up again.
The longer you wait the more fucked the recovery will be to get you back on track.

Your nerve impingement is getting worse. The longer you wait to address this the worse it's likely to get.
