A MRI would show more on whats going on in your neck.  It will show if you have a disc herniation or bone spurs which could be pressing on a facet nerve or if your spinal cord is being compressed.  I would ask for the MRI asap.  This could be serious and is something you should put off due to the possibility of permanently damaging your nerves.
