Hi everybody, 

After feeling mild pain on the extremities of my neck, I went to see  top number 1  neurosurgeon in Metairie, Louisiana who checked my  neck and arm motion and asked me to take MRI and X-rays.

After seeing the MRI and X-rays 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

Degenerative disk disease at C5-C6

my doctor told me he can do nothing for the time being and that I will have to wait and see what the future holds for me.

Please advise if my case as described above necessitates surgery.

Thanking you in avance
