I am 35 with a messed up neck, what are some good quest. i should ask my neurolagist.

                                                                        
         Mild to moderate left-sided neural foraminal narrowing at the        
         C3/C4 level, likely on the basis of degenerative uncovertebral        
         joint and facet joint change.                                        
                                                                              
         Broad-based disc spur complex noted at the C4/C5 level with          
         effacement of the anterior thecal sac and mild flattening of the      
         anterior aspect of the cervical spinal cord without cord              
         compression.  There is mild cervical spinal stenosis at C5/C6.        
         Degenerative facet and uncovertebral joint changes result in          
         moderate to severe right and moderate left neural foraminal          
         narrowing at C4/C5.                                                  
                                                                              
         Mild to moderate bilateral neural foraminal narrowing noted at        
         C5/C6 with more prominent broad-based disc spur complex noted        
         with moderate flattening of the cervical spinal cord without          
         definite cord signal abnormality.  The appearance is compatible      
         with at least moderate cervical spinal stenosis with the AP          
         dimension of the spinal canal approximately 7 mm.                    
                                                                              
         At the C6/C7 level, there is a left paracentral disc                  
         protrusion/spur complex, again with moderate cervical spinal          
         stenosis and mild to moderate flattening of the cervical spinal      
         cord eccentric to the left without any cord signal abnormality        
         identified.  Only mild left-sided neural foraminal narrowing at      
         the C6/C7 level is noted.  The C7/T1 level is essentially within      
         normal limits.  Incidental note made of disc space narrowing at      
         the T2/T3 level. This is my mri report. Any advise?

Hi, you have multiple disc bulges along with cord compression which can lead to pain in neck, arms and legs. Please consult neurosurgeon for the needful. Treatment depends upon the kind of symptoms you are having.

In case of bearable pain, no arm or leg weakness, medical treatment like pain killers, physiotherapy, etc is sufficient but if pain is intolerable or neurological issues are present than surgery is needed but always try to avoid surgery until it is extremely necessary.
