Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (DISH) (cont.)

When to Call the Doctor

Call your doctor if you have DISH and develop difficulty swallowing or changes in sensation (such as numbness or tingling) in your arms or legs.

Signs and symptoms of the rare complication of compression of the spinal cord are difficulty walking, loss of bowel or bladder control, and loss of sensation in the groin. These symptoms, while rare, should be evaluated emergently.
