It depends on type o: The report is only as reliable as the type of x-ray done(? C-spine x-ray versus MRI of the c-spine). If you have lots of pain, a plane x-ray is not likely to help with the diagnosis. You need to be sure that you are examined by a neurologist or neurosurgeon to help you find out the cause and offer treatment which is appropriate. They can order a mri, if indicated based on their examination.

Cervical Radiculitis: This pain could be cervical radiculitis which means pain in the neck that radiates to the arm. It could also be two separate conditions. Best to see a pain doctor to help evaluate. Check out paindoctor.Com to find a doc near you.
