I am a 22 year old female who for the past 2 years has had frequent sharp head pains and sharp pains in my arms and fingers. I work at a physicians office and went and had an MRI done of the cervical spine to see if there was anything amiss being that I was told my my primary care once that my headaches might be caused by my neck. I don't think that the MRI showed anything wrong, it does say that there is a
slight eccentric disc bulge at the c2-c3 level but with virtually no effect on the spinal canal.
mild uncovertebral hypertrophy causing minimal narrowing of the neural foramina at c3-c4 and c4-c5 and does not appear to have significant impact on the neural foramen or lateral recess.
straightening of the cervical spine is noted,however, consistent with muscle spasm.
So it appears that I have some minor issues that do not seem to really affect anything...I don't know why I have these pains then, and what can I do to manage my neck pain now?
