You need to describe your pain in detail.
It is at about the C5 level I would estimate and mostly midline, slightly to my left side mostly. Often it is a dull achy feeling but it does feel inflamed (ie. I can feel it is swollen when water runs on it at times). Other times, when it gets worse it turns to more of a burning and even a bit of a stinging pain as well. Lying down helps it, but doesn't necessarily get rid of it (it comes back upon getting up).
So its primarily still in your neck at this point, that's good that's an indication that's it's not severely pinched. Your not getting any pain in your upperback, shoulder, arm and hand?
It's like you said "disc osteophyte complex may impinge on exiting right C6"
I assume you're seeing a Doctor, are you having any treatment for this?
I went to a neurosurgeon who was not concerned at all with it. Told me to take Advil or something, which of course doesn't touch the pain at all.
I have been doing some physio mainly as far as treatment. Just tightness in upper back, no real pains otherwise.
