Neck pain: A bulging disc at the C6/7 level (cervical spine) is early arthritis that can lead to neck and left arm radiating down to the hand. A bulging disc is a less severe version of a herniated disc. The flattening of the thecal sac is indicatve of mild to moderate spinal canal narrowing. Usually, the symptoms can be treated with nonoperative remedies rather than surgery.
