Please Advise on my case

I am feeling mild pain with disconfort around neck borders and a little bit on collarbone.
I went to see a neurosurgeon in my location. After examining me, he asked me to get X-rays and MRI.
I brought him the X-rays results and MRI which revealed the following:

MRI results
1.Bilateral neural foraminalstenosis due to diffuse bulge of the annulus fibrosis with associated marginal osteophyte formation; C3-C4, C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7
2.Reversal of the normal cervical lordosis

X-rays results:
Degenerative disk disease at C4-C6. Questionable minimal anterior displacement of C4 over C5 during flexion views
Anterior Spondylosis C4-C6

after discussing my case, he told me, he could do nothing right now and that I will have to wait for what the future holds for me as far as shoulder and neck are concerned.


Please advise

Re: Please Advise on my case

If that's all the radiologist's report said, it's one of the worst I've ever seen. There should be five times as much detail, and you should get your money back.

I suppose, though, that the surgeon looked at the images themselves, and ignored the report?

You are right. The report was not detailed and the radiologist I was sent to was referred to me by the my doctor's nurse as being their favorite.

Thank you for your feedback

Re: Please Advise on my case

Well, it could be that the radiologist saw nothing worth mentioning, but he should still have been more explicit. As long as the surgeon looked at it and saw nothing that needed fixing, I guess we could conclude that your pain is likely not of spinal origin. Perhaps muscular...
