Thanks for writing to us.
You have degenerative changes in spine with disc prolapse and bony spurring. Disc bulges pressing on the spinal cord and the nerve roots at C5-6 and C6-7 levels. Nerve root pain usually cause arm pain and cord compression can cause myelopathy. Need to correlate the MRI findings with clinical symptoms. Thanks.
