I am a 40 year old woman who has been in pain since 2001. There has been no specific injury to it, it just came about over time. I have done the conservitive route and have even had spine injections - all of which don't/didn't reallyh help. I have even had a breast reduction and weight loss surgery to see if that would help with the pain.
Here is some of the results from my MRI from this past week. How serious does this sound to y'all here:
At C5/6, there is moderate disk height loss and moderate broad posterior disk bulging. Bulging disk contacts and deforms the cord. There is effacement of CSF space in the thecal sac at this level. AP diameter of the thecal sac measures about 6 to 7 mm AP. There is moderate severe right and moderate left neural forminal stenosis secondary to uncoertebral joint DJD.
