Normal EMG/NCV but still have cervical, nerve pain

I just had a full upper/lower EMG/NCV and it came back normal. When they did the test my left arm did not feel the needles and my right one did. At that time I was not having radiating nerve pain. My pain comes at all times of day and the burning muscles sensation behind my neck also. My left arm and sometimes my right have numbness and tingling sensations with pulsating shooting pain. My MRI found 4 bulged cervical disk with C4/C5 and C5/C6 being the worst. I have bilateral bulge on one and Left parasagittal protrusion on C5/C6 with slight disc space narrowing and disc dessiccation. I am only 29 years old and minimal cervical spondylosis and DDD. I hit my neck pretty hard as I was getting up from the floor and struck a metal bar. Blacked out for 5 minutes. Now I am tired of this pain and medication 6 months now. I want a normal life. Do surgeons still perform disc surgery since my pain is not constant enough for EMG to see. What can I do....Very confused and upset and little depressed. Thank you all for any replies.
