What could cause my scalp to be sore for this last week? I do have Rheumatoid arthritis, but I can't touch my head from soreness.
X-Ray showed narrowing of c4-5. What does this mean and can it cause a burning head pain on the right side? Doctor said early arthritis? I'm 27.
Yes: X-rays in general are not very sensative for spinal problems in that they just show the bones and not the nerves and soft tissues like an MRI. The space between the c4 and c5 vertebrae is narrowed, which indicates you probably do have some degree of degeneration of the disc at that level . Not something that in and of itself needs treatment, but if your symptoms are bad can be treated or MRI. ...Read more
