MRI Results

I recently had an MRI done on my neck.  The results:

C4-C5, there's is a mild disc bulging with a tiny central disc hernias ion which indents the ventral thecal sac without exerting mass effect upon the spinal cord

C5-C6, there is a mild disc bulging with a small right para central disc herniation which is partially effaced the ventral subarachnoid space without exerting mass effect upon the spinal cord.

C6-C7, there is a mild disc bulging and endplate osteophytic spurring.  There is no significant spinal canal or neural foraminal stenosis.

I would be grateful if some one could help me intelligently interpret what this is saying.  I have numbness in my back, right arm, and oddly right eye lid.  

Thank you.

Essentially this report excerpt says you have three mild disc bulges at levels C4-C7, one of which (C4-5) is exerting pressure on the thecal sac which surrounds the spinal cord, but not on the cord. In the C6-7 disc space the report notes some calcium scarring (osteophytes), but they do not put pressure on either the cord or a nerve root.

None of this explains your symptoms.
