    I have been diagnosed with cubital tunnel syndrome by my physical therapist but MRI of cervical spine revealed a right sided neural foraminal narrowing, disc dessication, mild bulges, encroachment of the anterior suarachnoid space and stenosis. Can all of the above be related?

    I had carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome of my right arm.  A specialist in Peripheral Nerve Disorders diagnosed after a technician did a very prolonged sensory nerve measurement of the amount of electrical stimuli  it took  to  get my nerves to respond.  After I had surgery for both problems my former symptoms disappeared immediately.  I am a RN and I  seriously doubt that the other problems you described involving your cervical spine could in any way be related.  I would  see a Peripheral Nerve specialist (mine was specially trained in a procedure developed at the Dellon Institute in Maryland) because the cubital tunnel surgery was  much more complicated and left me with an 8inch S-shaped scar in the bendn of my elbow (but it's not wide and besides I'm at least cured of one of my multiple pain issues. Also, for your other problems, see a Neurologist, Neurosurgeon, or an orthopedic surgeon to diagnosis  those.Good luck to you.
