Detailed Answer:
Hi there,

Thanks for the query. You haven’t mentioned about your T3 and T4 levels. You have severe foraminal stenosis in cervical spine and L5-S1. These can cause weakness of limbs.

Paraesthesia of face especially on one side could be a sign of stroke. You need to have a CT head to confirm.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

Thanking you.
