Low IgM levels are seen in many autoimmune diseases. Consult XXXXXXX Medicine Physician for specific study and treatment.

Ejection Fraction and Fract short are not same. If EF is less than 35% then it is called Fract Short.

It is not right to interpret the MRI report in the absence of clear cut clinical picture. Moreover it is not clear in your query what are the changes appearing at C4/C5, C5/C6 and C6/C7 levels in the initial MRI. Generally we see degenerative changes, disc bulge etc. Such changes spontaneously are not resolved. Why was a EMG done instead of MRI after 6 months.

I would like to suggest you to consult Orthopedician / Spine Surgeon. Do not neglect.
