Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

All your MRI findings in the description suggests that you have cervical disc disease with arthritic changes (wear & tear). The disc protrusions will cause pressure over the correspoding level nerve roots which produces pain in the neck and at times radiating down the arm and into fingers.

Consult an orthopedic surgeon for further management.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
