Your pain: is in the "pattern" or distribution of the C6-C7 nerves exiting at that level HOWEVER disc "BULGES" are NORMAL findings!!!!! Look to another reason for your should blade pain..eg: SUBSCAPULARIS strain/sprain (the muscle UNDER the shoulder blade which helps your shoulder move. Hope this is helpful! Dr X

Those MRI findings: should not be the cause of your current symptoms.
