MRI Results

Started by 1981Sassy24 on 11/22/2018 2:18am

Hi I am new to this group and was wondering if someone could help me understand my MRI results please? I am in so much pain and don'tknow what to do. I have had several back surgeries and have a spinal cord stimulator in but right now I can'tturn my neck and keep getting constant persistent migraines. Here is what it says:

At C6-7, there is a broad-based protrusion eccentric to the right lateral location and extending into the area of the uncinate process. There is mild narrowing of the lower right neural foramen and there is mild right anterior cord compression.

2. Mild degenerative change/protrusion at C4-5 ridging the sac but not compressing the cord. Mild narrowing of the left neural foramen.

 END OF IMPRESSION:
INDICATION: Right neck pain into both arms. For a year. No trauma or surgery.

FINDINGS:
There is no crowding of the foramen magnum. Vertebral body heights are maintained. Disc space heights are fairly well maintained. There is no canal or neural foraminal stenosis at C2-3 or C3-4. At C4-5, there is a mild protrusion and uncinate spurring with mild narrowing of the left neural foramen. There is no cord compression.
At C5-C6, the canal and neural foramina are patent. At C6-7, there is a broad-based protrusion in the right lateral location with mild anterior cord compression. There is mild narrowing of the right neural foramen. Left neural foramen is patent. The canal and neural foramina are patent at C7-T1.
There are reactive fibrosis changes about the C6-7 disc space.
