My MRI scan report shows:
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I read your query and went through your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
It shows there may be a minimal indentation of the thecal sac at cervical 5 and 6 vertebrae, and mild indentation at few other cervical levels due to a disc prolapse, which might cause a headache, a neck pain or a tingling sensation of the upper limbs.
And, if the indentation is too severe, it causes vertigo and a reeling sensation.

Thank you doctor,
Yes, I do have a tingling sensation of the upper limbs and a pain in the middle finger and thumb.
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
A tingling sensation of the upper limbs and pain is mainly due to a compression of the spinal nerves because of a disc prolapse.
You can use a cervical collar to relieve the pressure on the nerve.
I suggest you take tablet Gabarich (Gabapentin and Methylcobalamin) 150 mg once daily at night time for 15 days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.
Also, what kind of work do you do?
