    Thanks for great info. on radiculopathy and how it affects the different nerve roots. I had to read/look at diagrams a few times because it can be a bit confusing. I suffer from radiculopathy at the C-8 nerve root (even though there is not a C-8 vertebrae). Thanks again for the informative link. I would recommend anyone suffering with radiculopathy to check it out. Thanks again orangetabby! Lisa
