Question cervical / foramina stenosis MRI results ???

Cervical Spondylosis/ MRI Results pls help


Ok had a MRI and of course i dont understand it. I know i have been having this pain in my neck for over 5 yrs and i finally recev'd an MRI.. I have an upcoming ortho appt to review this but anxious to know now. Basically it says Midld diffuse bulging disc annulus C5 C/6 with slight ventral impression noted in thecal sac. Associated exit foramina widely patent.

More Pronounced diffuse bulging disc annulus C6 C/7 with moderate soft tissue extension noted to each exit foramina.

IMPRESSION: Cervical spondylosis C5/6 C5/7 without significant central canal stenosis and mild to moderate soft tissue foramina stenosis noted at C 6/7

I know that i do experience awful pain when these "flare-ups" happen. In the past i have had dr's tell me that i should not be in pain...(before i recv'd this MRI) i feel somewhat relieved knowing that something is actually my question is what do these results mean ?? Is it something to actually be worried it bad or is it just normal ware and tare with the aging process (ugh )??
Thanks for your help
