Couple weeks ago my regular Dr informed me that Arthritis has shown between my 5-6 and 6-7 vertebrae in the Cervical section of my spine. I was telling him about the worsening spasms on the sides of my neck, and how the left Ulnar nerve issue from years ago appears to have reared it's ugly head. He was reading the CT results when he laid this news on me. ENT didn't bother to mention it. Asked him if he thought it's a by-product of the rads, and he did not rule that out as the cause, and said that at the very least the rads contributed to this new diagnosis. Had a CT in 10/11, and I forgot to ask if that report showed it. Go in later today for some Onco tests at the place I got the CT, and plan to ask them if they could access that report.
So- anybody else told of (new) Arthritis in the Cervical part of the spine? And, if so- attributed to the rads? And, possible options to deal with?
