Our expert says:
Loss of the lordosis is consistent with muscle spasm - There is a loss of the normal forward curve probably as a result of some muscle spasm
Degenerative changes with marginal and bridging osteophytes seen - possibly some narrowing of disc spaces as well as some small "osteophytes" - tiny spur formations.
There appears to be a disk space narrowing at the C5-6 level - narrowing (degeneration) of the C5/C6 disc - possibly the causitive region for your symptoms.
Posterior elements appear intact - Normal
There is osteophytic encroachment of the right C6-7 neural foramen - more spur formation causing a diminished nerve root space between these two vertebra (another possible reason for your problem)
No cervical ribs noted. - Good (Normal)
Pre cervical soft tissues appear intact. - Normal
Cervical spondylitic changes are seen.” - as above report.
The symptoms are indicative of nerve root irritation and may require some surgical ntervention. A neurosurgeon would be the best option.
