Re: Help understanding neck x-ray & MRI

Thanks again webdozer.
You’re incredibly knowledgeable & helpful!
I have no pain in thumb or index finger.
I have pain in both arms which would rule out left sided nerve compression.
I wish doc that ordered this mri had explained so simply and clearly.
Also, interesting to hear your experience with cervical spine issues in that pain was not issue (except post op).
You wrote, “I wonder if your neck pain (when reaching) does not originate more in muscles than nerves. you may have intended to write arm rather than neck as I have pain in my arm when reaching. But you may be right pain very well may originate in muscles not nerves.
You’ve been an enormous help.
