In brief: Spine MRI
Although your pcp can order a spine mri, but i advise you to be seen by either a neurologist of neuro surgeon inorder to be more specific, sometimes according to the symptoms may be you need to have an MRI of other part of the spine and also to have benefit of the spine MRI it is better to be reviewed carefully especially if eventually you need to be seen by the specialist.
