Mri results for cervical spine anyone relate?

I had this done last year and was told there is nothing wrong with me but now that My arms are so weak and numb that I can not do anything for myself anymore I'm being told that I need a neuro surg. iV BASICALLY JUST GIVEN UP WITH dRS UNTIL i couldnt lift my hands anymore, so I was admitted to the hospital a couple days ago and told I need to make an appt asap with a nerologist for my other symptoms I believe to possible MS (((see my post last year))) if your curious to my symptoms that have by the way worsend with new symptoms like buzzing vibrateing hands, feet and calves as well as my spine feeling like electricity is running through it. SO ANYWAY... I was told I also need to see a neuro surgien ASAP!!!!
can someone relay this mri to me PLEASE!!!!!


Procedure(s): Cervical Spine

Cervical spine MRI. Comparison is made with the previous exam
9/15/2011.

Findings:
There is a minimal smooth reversal of the normal cervical lordosis in
association with anterior disc space narrowing at C5-6. This is
similar to the prior study. There is no acute fracture. There is no
measurable spondylolisthesis. There is disc desiccation throughout the
cervical spine with mild loss of the disc height at C3-4 and C5-6. In
the sagittal projection in the cord is contacted at C3-4 and C5-6 and
is displaced posteriorly at these levels without effacement of the
posterior CSF space to suggest impingement. There is no definite
intracord signal abnormality. This study is significantly limited by
motion artifact on the axial images and, to a lesser extent, on the
sagittal images.

C2-3: There is no focal disc herniation. There is no significant
narrowing of the central canal or neural foramina. There is mild facet
disease.

C3-4: There is a mild broad-based disc herniation which may be
partially ossified. This looks similar to the previous examination.
This contacts and flattens the ventral cord but does not obliterate
the CSF space posteriorly to suggest cord impingement. There is no
intracord signal abnormality. There is facet and uncovertebral disease
with severe bilateral foraminal narrowing. This looks similar to the
prior study.

C4-5: There is no focal disc herniation. There is facet and
uncovertebral disease. There is no significant narrowing of the
central canal. There is mild right foraminal narrowing. There is
moderate left foraminal narrowing. This is similar to the prior study.

C5-6: There is a moderate broad-based disc herniation which contacts
and flattens the ventral aspect of the cord but does not obliterate
the CSF space posteriorly to suggest cord impingement. Minimal
intracord signal abnormality cannot be excluded. The herniation at
this level has increased in size since the prior study. There is facet
and uncovertebral disease. There is a mild right foraminal stenosis.
There is a moderate to severe left foraminal stenosis.

C6-7: There is no focal disc herniation. There is facet and
uncovertebral disease. There at least moderate and possibly severe
foraminal narrowing on the right. There is severe left foraminal
narrowing.

C7-T1: There is no focal disc herniation. There is no significant
narrowing of the central canal or neural foramina.

In the sagittal projection, the proximal thoracic spine is
demonstrated through the T2-3 disc level and looks normal in the
field-of-view.

Impression:
1. There is a moderate disc herniation at C5-6 which contacts and
flattens the ventral cord without definitely impinging on the cord.
Minimal intracord signal abnormality cannot be excluded. Motion
artifact is limiting the study in this regard. The disc herniation at
this level looks slightly larger than at the time of the prior
examination.

2. There is a disc herniation which may be partially calcified at
C3-4. This also contacts and flattens the ventral aspect of the cord
but to a lesser extent at C5-6. This looks unchanged from the prior
study.

3. There are potentially significant foraminal stenoses at multiple
levels. The sensitivity and specificity of the study is limited by
motion artifact.
