    Question MRI Results What does this mean?

    Hello. Does anyone here know what these MRI results mean?

    MRI Cervical Spine without contrast

    "There is question of slight narrowing of the right neural foramen at the C3-4 level; however, findings may be artifactual in nature. No abnormalities are identified on sagittal images".

    Could something like this cause pain, numbness and otherwise peripheral neuropathy type symptoms and in what part of body? What other symptoms can this cause or does it mean nothing?

    Thanks for any info you may be able to provide.

    CLC: It means U may have caught a problem in time, unlike me. Narrowing @ C3-4
    happens alot if U read, computer board, crafts or anything that keeps U tilting nose
    dwn. People that wear 1/2 glasses get it alot `tilt dwn to look over'. U can get swell-
    ing, stiffness, pain looking to left & narrow area hits a nerve. Then U get neck/upper
    back burn. Train posture & neck excercises. Maybe wear a collar around hm & flatter
    pillow to sleep. Mine went to C5 & then U have problems. Numb hand, shoulder spasm,
    & burn @ spine between blades. Start stretching the neck more frequently.
