Cervical stenosis, bulging cervical discs, osteoarthritis. High levels of alkaline phosphate due to stenosis?

I m having neck, back, and shoulder pain. MRI and x-rays were done. I was diagnosed with Cervical Stenosis , multiple bulging cervical disks. Osteoarthritis , Facet arthritis, and degenerative disc disease . I ve also been having problems with abnormally high levels of alkaline phosphatase. Could the alkaline levels be high because of the stenosis?

I read carefully your query.
I think that the reason of alkaline levels does not depend from cervical stenosis,disc bulging or osteoarthritis because these are inflamatory disease.
You should exclude any malign disease with:
- All body CT
- Kolonoscopy
- Fibrogastroscopy

If every think will be okay you should consult with Internist doctor to see any metabolic disease.

Wishing you all best.
