Need help with MRI Results

newer MRI waiting for a real answer for what has changed from 2021 MRI not the response I received.  Can someone please explain for me since I am still waiting for a response from Dr office and no available appointment until April

Comments from the Doctor's Office
Nothing to explain left arm pain. Would continue to work with non-surgical team.

Study Result

Right paracentral protrusion and right uncovertebral spurring at C5-6 results in severe right foraminal stenosis. There is compression of the exiting right C6 nerve root and possibly the descending right C7 nerve root.

Compared to the prior MRI from 2/19/2021 this represents interval progression of degenerative change and increased right foraminal stenosis at C5-6.
