Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your complaints and MRI spine findings. I would like to reassure you that these abnormalities are minor and do not represent any serious neurological disease.

For pain relief, you can take pregabalin or gabapentin capsules. In addition, physiotherapy with IFT/ultrasound and neck extension exercises would also help.

In some cases, epidural injections are required for pain relief.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
