Have disc protrusion at C3-4 levels effacing ventral subarachnoid space. What does this mean?

disc protrusion at the C3-4 levels effacing ventral subarachnoid space..........what does this mean and what are treatment options? I have pain radiating into my right arm accompanied by a painful burning sensation below my right shoulder pain. The discomfort is usually present when I use my right arm too much or am walking carrying things. Writing a letter is out of the question, too much writing is very painful.

It seems like the disc protrusion is pressing on the cervical nerve roots and producing the symptoms you described.
I suggest you do gentle neck exercises, use a drug like pregabalin and maybe even use a soft cervical collar.
