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.
