I have had ongoing pain for 3 months- what I thought was a pinched nerve. After a month of intense pain I had x-Rays taken and i will find you was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease with osteoporosis. I did physical therapy which made things worse. This led to my MRI and i will find you I don't fully understand the results which are as follows.

1. There is a broad-based annular disc bulge and left paracentral
significant disc osteophyte complex at C5-C6, which causes left neural
foraminal and central canal stenosis. There is effacement of the canal and
contact with the cord at this level, but no current signal change in the
cord is appreciated.
2. Lesser central disc osteophyte complex and uncovertebral hypertrophy at
C4-C5, C3-C4, and C6-C7. At these levels, there is no significant central
canal or neural foraminal stenosis.
3. No acute fracture, acute subluxation, or endplate depression.
4. No abnormal bone marrow signal or mass lesion.
There is nobody on the forum qualified or permitted to interpret or advise on an MRI finding this is something you need to discuss with your doctor
