Gosh CL,

I'm sorry about the MRI results hopefully the rhizo will help. Not to fret at this point--I know you're ready to punch me in the face.

If it ever comes to the point of needing to do something about your neck:

The good news is that foraminal stenosis can be treated with minimally invasive procedures (it's great to hear that you don't have wide herniations or the like). You should get in touch with "wilsonrob" on this forum, as he had issues with foraminal stenosis (lumbar spine) and was able to open them up with relatively quick, twilight sedation surgeries at the Bonati Institute in Florida. It doesn't specifically state they do foramenoplasty on the cervical spine, but it is something worth inquiring about.

The Bonati Institute

Keep your head up ...and like the others said...treat yourself to something like a manicure/pedicure or a facial, etc. I know my wife loves it when I schedule these for her when she is having a rough week.

Be well trooper,
