Hi everyone! I recently posted but decided I should establish my newness to the forum. I've been having neck pain for a year and a half which came on pretty much out of no where. MRI and X-Rays of last year showed c4-c5 as well as c5-c6 central disc protrusion, and spondylolisthesis of c4-c5.
Did physical therapy for a few months, didn't seem to help during, but pain lessened significantly for a good 6 months. A month ago, neck pain came back really strong. And worse than before. I'm only 17 with no history of neck trauma. No doctors have any explanation of what could have caused this. New batch of tests show a 3mm spondylolisthesis at c2-c3 on the MRI, but the X-Rays says no evidence of spondylolisthesis.
Anyone have any idea why they would conflict eachother like that? Also, the c4-c5 spondylolisthesis revealed on last years X-Rays is nowhere to be found on any tests from this year. I am wondering why all these tests are showing different and conflicting results. Has that happened to any of you? I also have a reversal of cervical lordosis. The spinal surgeon I saw said this is normal Disc degeneration. I can't seem to agree that this is normal for someone my age. Confused and scared. Anyone with any input, or similar conditions, replys are greatly appreciated.
