Re: Help understanding neck x-ray & MRI

thanks for reply webdozer.
when i reach the pain is upper arm, bicep. it can be excruciating.
while i have pain in lower arm. this pain is not made worse with movement.
when i use hands fingers sometimes that brings on pain in upper arms.
for example, it's painful in upper arms to turn steering wheel. i can use my finger such as press a button, use remote and it causes pain in upper arm.
i'm assuming rheumatologist believes pain in (arms/neck/shoulders) is due to ddd and pinched nerve because of how pain presents and imaging.
i thought "neural forminal impingement at C5-6 means pinched nerve?
