  • I'm sorry you're having so much pain right now. Although we can't answer by reading your MRI I hope you're seeing a Neurosurgeon or Orthopedic Surgeon soon. Just use the blue box at the top of the page to look up your conditions. I also found www.chirogeek.com an informative website. Take care. Charry
