My wife, who is 43 years old, is feeling loss of skin sensation on the lower part of the legs. This feeling has started 4 years ago. But, it did not bother her that time. Two years ago, we consulted a neurologist and he prescribed medicines, which brought her relief. She stopped taking medicine a couple of months back and the loss of skin sensation came back again. We went back to the doctor and took medicine for one day. She started feeling nausea, vomiting and felt like drifting into the vacuum while sleeping due to which she was afraid to go to sleep. Then we consulted another doctor and he advised not to take that medicine. He advised us to take an MRI of the cervical spine. The MRI result is as follows. Central disc herniation at C4-C5 and C5-C6 level with indenting anterior thecal sac. Reduced AP canal at C4-C5 and C5-C6 level. MRI of lumbosacral spine result showed Schmorl's at L3. Mild diffuse disc bulge at L4-L5 vertebra indenting anterior thecal sac and narrowing both neural foramens. My wife has also been suffering from spondylitis of the neck. Her current medication includes Anxi 0.25, Dizitac, Amixid-L, Oslol 20 mg, Pregamin and Nucoxia 120.My doubts are as follows. How serious is the problem? Either orthopedician or neurosurgeon, whom should we need to consult? Does the condition require surgery? If yes, what will be the complications post surgery?
