Bone sticking out from neck, unable to find from where. Have an old compressed fracture

I can feel a bone sticking out in my neck about 3/4 of an inch to the to the left of my esophagus and about 1 inch above my collar bone. My doctor does not know where this bone is from nor did the chiropractor or physiotherapist . They all think it s a bone though. I have serious pain all the time. I am waiting for an MRI at the moment since xray and ultrasound dont show it. I have an old compression fracture of my T11 and I had injured my neck in a horse accident 20 years ago. To make it interesting I was diagnosed with ehlers danlos as well. I am losing a lot of feeling in my extremities, my gait is really affected, and the migraines are sufferable. Any idea where this bone is from? And then I figure out afterwards that you guys are fucking cocksuckers....

Thanks for writing to us.
The palpable bone sticking out of the neck is definitely an abnormal finding. You need to get an MRI scan of your cervical spine done to find out the extent of damage.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
