If you think you’re experiencing foraminal stenosis, you can consult with us at Alexander Bone and Spine Institute to determine your condition. It is most common to experience tingling or numbness in the affected areas, and you might also feel discomfort, numbness, or tingling in your extremities.
When the condition worsens, your symptoms may become stronger and can lead to further weakness and loss of sensation.
There are several spinal conditions can cause the narrowing or shrinking of vertebral foramen:
• Bone spurs or other spinal debris
• Arthritis in the spine
• Enlargement of a joint
• Swelling or inflammation of surrounding tissue
