Hi Doc,

Would chronic right C5,C6,C7,C8 and T1 radiculopathies and C7,C8,T1 on the left with superimposed ulnar nerve pathology at the left elbow and right wrist eventually prevent me from getting a first class medical ?
The symptoms, especially the numbness in the hand and feet are more pronounced when sitting and at night during sleep.

thanks

You will need an evaluation from a Neurologist. The FAA will review that to see if this is OK or if it is severe enough to be unsafe and therefore prevent you from being issued a medical certificate.
