Hello and hope you are doing well.
Sometimes what you feel could be the osteophytes. Cervical osteophytes are bone spurs that grow on the cervical vertebra. Cervical osteophyte formation typically occurs when ligaments and tendons around the bones and joints in the cervical spine are damaged or inflamed. Osteophytes in the spine are a normal sign of aging and are not a cause for concern unless they result in pain or neurological symptoms. Consult your doctor, he may ask for X rays and sometimes a CT scan too see for changes in the vertebra.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
THank you for your reponse. I am having an MRI Friday. This is very painful . It is like having a fish bone stuck in your mouth at the back of your tongue
