Disk C6-7: Yes. Review with your team about what to do about it if anything.

Referred pain: Certainly the neck issues can radiate to left shoulder and arm, but cannot exclude local shoulder problem involving rotator cuff without an exam. Do find that these kinds of problems respond well to physical therapy, but you need to discuss potential approaches with your physicians.

Unlikely.: The most fertile time of the month is about 2 weeks from the start of your period assuming that you have a period every 28 days. If your periods are shorter than 28 days, it is possible that you could have hit the fertile time. You will have to wait until you miss your period to get a pregnancy test. There is no way to tell if you are pregnant where you are in your cycle now.
