See your doctor: This problem can only be solved by seeing your doctor and being evaluated face-to-face. After a thorough examination, your doctor should be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.

Jibberish: You are trying to interpret a complex interpretation of x-rays and/or mri. These are just visual descriptions of the films. More important are the clinical symptoms and the interpretation of your problem by a competent physician. Sounds like a traumatic event in your upper back with compression and shifting of the bones of the spine. Not much can be done, but surgery may be an option.
