The changes that your MRI shows are suggestive of cervical spondylosis. With age almost all people will have these changes but you have developed them a little early. If these degenerative changes progress then problems like, neck pain, restriction of neck movements, arm pain, arm weakness etc can occur. The possible causes could be prolonged unhealthy neck postures for e.g. sitting for long hours before computer which is not at level with eyes etc. You can incorporate some of these life style changes and learn physiotherapy of the neck which will help you in the long run.
Good luck.
