I have calcium growth on my C5 & poor curvature in my neck. I love to read but it causes my neck to ache. How should I position myself for reading?

Eye level

Reading material and your computer screen should be adjusted so that you are looking straight at them. You should not bend your head down in order to view them. This may require rethinking how you read and work. It is worth it!

I have a neck problem for 1 yrs ir one doc said its artheritis and curvature off spine it seems to make my right side off neck swell so bad num?

Herniated disc

Knee_pain
You are relatively young for severe arthritis although possible. Sounds like you have a herniated cervical disc. If causing persistant pain and numbness you probably need to seek the attention of an ortho doc or pain management specialist. If only having pain and no weakness might be worth trying an injection and therapy. If you have weakness with a large disc u may require surgery. Good luck

MRI of my neck shows straightening of the curvature after having muscle spasms and nerve injury. I have headaches everyday. Does this cause it?

Could be trigger

Nerve_injury
Sounds like a chronic cervical strain which might contribute to headaches, but the neck MRI might reflect nearby pathology at the thoracic outlet which could also trigger headaches. Best to get this fully assessed and perhaps get physical therapy or see an osteopathic specialist.

Dr. David Chrisman answered:

What types of symptoms would you expect from someone who has a reversed cervical curve in their neck?

Forward head posture

Neck_pain
The technical term is kyphosis and it is commonly called forward head posture. The cervical vertebrae become compressed in the front and ligaments stretched in the back. Many times it is associated with TMJ problems and headaches which may originate in the back of the head. It will also associate with rolled shoulders and increases curvature of the back with hips forward to compensate down body

My neck spine is curved in a backwards c I have had a c4 fusion onthe inside what would cause this?

Several causes

Neck
If they did not use a plate for your C4 fusion, sometimes the fusion collapses as it heals, and the curvature is changed to the "reverse C" (kyphosis). Also, adjacent discs could be narrowing and causing it. If your having neck or arm pain see your spine specialist, get a flexion/extension x-ray and an MRI to have accurate diagnosis. Always try non-surgical treatments, PT, etc. first.

I noticed a slight hump where back and neck meet. My doctor said it is a fatty deposit. True? I am a 32 year old female.

Focal?

Open-uri20121104-25068-1vgqrsu
If you have a focal discrete fatty nodule, it is most likely a lipoma, a benign fatty tumor, more common in people with metabolic syndrome. If more broadly based between upper thoracic spine and neck, it is probably larger area of subcutaneous fat. These are accentuated by excess curvature of the thoracic spine and excess reverse curvature of the neck, so postural issues and weight both factors.
