MRI and xray report for Cervical Spine

From: snshnchsr - on 08/31/2012 6:46pm

I would like help deciphering my xray and mri results. I am not experiencing any loss of feeling in any of my arms, but do wake up with major headaches and left side of my neck is in moderate pain (there is a bone growth bulge from the spurring). I also do have the feeling of ice pick sharp pains in my temple and ear. And left hand has been cramping a lot lately at the knuckle of my little finger. Thank you everyone for your help.

Xray: Show end-stage disc disease at C5-6 and C6-7. C5-6 grade 1 retrolisthesis. On the oblique views, the (L) C5-6 and C6-7 foramen are markedly narrowed with uncinate spurring and essentially obliterated. Some narrowing of the (R) C5-6 and C6-7 forament. C4-5 grade 1 anterolisthesis with flexion.

MRI:

C4-5: There is central dis protrusion causing mild flattening of the thecal sac without cord impression or stenosis.

C5-6: There is a broad disc bulge with indention of the cord. There is moderate central canal stenosis and bilateral foraminal stenosis with impingement of the exiting C6 roots.

C6-7: There is a diffuse disc bulge with indention of the cord. There is mild to moderate central canal and bilateral foraminal stenosis with facet and uncovertebral jount hypertrophy and impingement of the exiting C7 roots.

Impression: Diffuse disc bulges and osteophytes are seen at C5-6 and C6-7 causing indention of the cord. There is mild to moderate canal and bilateral foraminal stenosis at these levels when combined with facet and uncovertebral jount hypertrophy.
