Mri of cervical spine says there is disc space desiccation from c3c4 through c5c6 intervertebral disc space level. What does it mean?
Degenerative change: Means that the disc, which is a sort of "cushion" between the vertebral bodies, is losing elasticity due to chemical alterations in its substance, generally associated with aging and wear and tear. It is an early manifestation of degenerative disc disease/arthritis. Very common, likely not to cause symptoms as an isolated finding. No treatment per se, no follow up if this is the only finding. ...Read more
My current MRI of cervical spine shows reactive endplate changes and large central disc extrusion at c3/c4 indenting on spinal cord. Should I Worry?
Herniated disc: Not to worry but you should visit a neurosurgeon in the next week for evaluation and treatment. Hand tingling and weakness is a sign of cord compression.

See below...: With age we all unfortunately lose water and cartilage in our discs. This can cause the discs to bulge and is commonly seen on mri. Disc bulges and bone spurs from the uncovertebral joints that compress nerves can cause arm pain, weakness, and numbness. I would follow-up with your doctor to determine if your symptoms are related to the changes seen on mri. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
