Foraminal stenosis vary depending on which part of your spine is affected.
Cervical stenosis develops when the foramen of your neck narrow. Pinched nerves in your neck can cause a sharp or burning pain that starts in the neck and travels down your shoulder and arm. Your arm and hand may feel weak and numb with “pins and needles.”
Thoracic stenosis develops when the foramen in the upper portion of your back narrow. Pinched nerve roots in this part of your back can cause pain and numbness that wrap around to the front of your body.
Lumbar stenosis develops when the foramen of your low back narrow. The lower back is the section of your spine most likely to be affected by foraminal stenosis. This can be felt as pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness in the buttocks, legs, and sometimes the foot.
