Cervical Radiculopathy

Paresthesia
  • Symptoms and Signs Cord compression commonly causes gradual spastic paresis, paresthesias, or both in the hands and feet and may cause hyperreflexia. Neurologic deficits may be asymmetric, nonsegmental, and aggravated by cough or Valsalva maneuvers.[merckmanuals.com]
  • If severe, it may cause pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots with subsequent sensory or motor disturbances, such as pain, paresthesia, imbalance, and muscle weakness in the limbs.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Paresthesiae may accompany pain in the cervical region, the upper limb, shoulder or interscapular region. Radiation to the chest may also occur. Physical examination reveals neck stiffness and numbness in the affected root.[boneandspine.com]
