Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have read your concern and seen the MRI report. It seems that the spine shows degeneration in the bones and disk but does not show any impingement of the spinal cord and the nerves. However, the cervical vertebrae are abnormally straightened as opposed to normal curve (this signifies muscle strain). The pain you are experiencing can be discoligamentous in nature, meaning this is coming from the disc and bones and joint attachments. It is a good thing that you do not have any motor weakness (signifies intact nerves). This usually resolves in pain medications and rehabilitative medicine in six weeks. This should help you.
The Probable causes:
Age-related changes.Investigations to be done:
Repeat MRI after rehabilitation in six weeks, serum, calcium, sodium.Differential diagnosis:
Cervical arthropathy due to RA or TB.Probable diagnosis:
Degenerative cervical spine disease.Treatment plan:
Pain medications, NSAID and Gabapentin.Preventive measures:
Exercises and rehabilitative medicine, physical therapy.
