Hi, The findings of the M.R.I. cervical spine done which have conginetal mal formations, with which you didn't have any problem so far. The present condition is concussion, and it needs, C.T.scan of the brain.
I advise you to consult a neurologist for diagnosis and treatment. Don't worry you will be fine with the treatment.Thank you.
