Depends: You might have neck pain or maybe not. Might be a normal finding of a disk bulge that comes and goes. Do you have radiation of pain to either arm or shoulder? Does your shoulder or neck have pain elicited by movement of your neck? If i had this i would want to have "kinetic mri", which is an MRI taken while sitting up. The usual MRI takes image in an unnatural supine position on a hard slab.
