Does not correlate.: The disk bulges at C5-C7 should affect your arm & neck, not the forehead & scalp. Many people live their ENTIRE LIVES with bulging disks & don't complain of any pain, so MRI or CT scan to "diagnose" bulging disks is actually a gross misuse of imaging. Talk to your doctor or a neurologist about your symptoms to undergo accurate testing. Or use HealthTap Prime. Good luck to you; hope you find cause.
