MRI Interpretation

My current symptoms include debilitating brain fog, pain in left shoulder and whole of left arm, as well as identical pain in right arm, and pain in right little finger and right ring finger. MRI shows the following, but have no idea what the results mean:

At C3 C4 level there is a broad based disc osteophyte complex abutting the exiting right C4 exiting nerve root. At C4/5 there is a minor broadbased disc bulge, but there are foraminal disc osteophyte complex protrusion impinges on the exiting left C5 root.

At C5/6 there is a broad based disc osteophyte complex protrusion which seemingly almost impinges upon the exiting left C6 nerve root and abutting the right sided C6nerve root along the foraminal courses. At C6/7 there is a broad based disc osteophyte complex protrusion, impinging on the exiting left C7 nerve root and abutting the right C7 nerve root. There is some increased signal intensity changes seen along the cervical segment of the cord, particularly at C3/4 and C5/6 and C6/7 levels, more in keeping with early mylopathy.

Do any of these readings cause possible brain fog.

Many thanks in advance for any replies received.
