On my MRI results the C2-C3, C3-C4,C6-C7 are all Disc desiccation without a disc osteophyte complex or herniation. No canal or foraminal stenosis.
Then on my C4-C5, right paracentral disc osteophyte complex resulting in minimal canal and right foraminal stenosis. No left foraminal stenosis.
C5-C6, Right paracentral disc osteophyte complex resulting in minimal canal and mild right foraminal stenosis with ecroachment upon the exiting right C6 nerve root. No left foraminal stenosis.

Can someone explain this to me? I had a fall at work and I have tingling and pain in my right arm and can not use it without the pain getting worse. I have to see a spine specialist and I would like to know what they are saying before I go in there.

Hi there!

The MRI describes mild degeneration of the cervical intervertebral discs without compression of neural structures at most levels and mild narrowing on the spinal canal and the space that carries the spinal nerves on the right side at C4/C5 and C5/C6.
Hope this information helps.

Take care!
