Question: What does my recent MRI mean? C6-7 there is, again observed a broad posterior end plate spondylotic ridge/annular bulge complex which partially effaces the anterior subarachnoid space without cord contact.
Answered by Dr. Neeraj Kumar 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
Nothing serious

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.
The MRI is suggestive of displacement of disc between C6-7 vertebrae. This is mildly touching the dura covering over cord. This is not compressing the cord.
Pain maybe muscular or nerve root compression.
Please provide details regarding symptoms.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further information.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... For over a year I have had pain in my luq (my gastroenterologist thinks it is subcutaneous nerve entrapment). I have also had episodes of dark urine, diarhhea and/or very light colored stools. The episodes are becoming more frequent. I am a 57 year old female trying to decide when/if I should go back to the doctor. I do not have insurance, so I don't want to see the doctor if it is stress or normal aging. I also experience muscle weakness in my right arm on occassion. I'd like a doctor's opinion.
