Brief Answer:
MRI explained below

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

Your MRI shows that you have cervical stenosis (narrowing of spinal canal) at levels of neck vertebrae c5-6 and c6-7 with the narrowing of the foramina (hole) where nerve roots come out in left c6 and c7 vertebrae.
More narrowed in left than right that's why you have more pain in left arm and shoulder than right.
You can consult an orthopaedic doctor for surgical options since drugs are no more relieving the pain.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
