    Re: disc bulge

    You have some degenerative arthritis in your cervical spine. One of your discs is bulging inward toward the spinal cord, but not touching it (only the fluid and sac that surrounds it), the area where your nerves leave the spinal cord (foramen) is narrowed) at a spot, and you have osteophytes and hypertrophy (arthritic bone growth) at multiple levels. Nothing horribly serious, but all this is probably causing you some symptoms?

    The disc bulge could have been there for a while from a simple injury or just aging. The spine sometimes works to "shore" itself up and starts building extra bone and stuff. Or this could be normal aging process depending on your age.
