am getting sharp electrical pain in my spine numbness in my neck and uncontrollable shaking in my right arm. i have had a mri done on my entire spine with no contrast and all they could find was a cyst in my c6 area of the spine and my x-rays and blood work all came back neg. except for my sugar level was at 130. i also i have been getting periods when everything goes fuzzy and starts spinning. what exactly is this and what is a good treatment?

hi and welcome to the support group -

It's hard to determine any type of treatment especially since the physicians we have on board have not examined you.

You seem to have several factors involved - one you have a cyst on your C6 - this could be causing the problems you are experiencing in your arm -

you also have a high sugar level which can cause the fuzzy/spinning feelings -

It's best that you see your primary care physician regarding the blood sugar level for diagnose - and for your cyst on your C6 you should either see an Orthopedic Spine Specialist or a Neurosurgeon Spine Specialist for treatment options.

I think this is the best suggestions that we can give -

Please have this done as soon as possible - take care - Joy

Your diagnosis is completely unclear and cannot be determined by your description of symptoms. I recommend you see a good Neurologist for an evaluation asap.
