See below: You could consider physical therapy, pain management for injection, or seeing neurosurgery for a surgerical evaluation.

See details: Visual changes would not be related to cervical spine disease. The cervical spine issues may respond to physical therapy and meds.

Integrative care: A herniated disc can cause neck pain as well as headache. Visual blurring is not a typical symptom and warrants evaluation by an opthomalogist.

Unrelat: The symptoms described are likely not related to the previously reported image findings of cervical disc protrusion. A thorough evaluation should clarify.
