I've had nagging back pain for the past 3 weeks or so and it's just getting worse. I have sharp pain going from the left side of my neck all the way down my left arm. It throbs like it hurts in my bicep and forearm but the damage appears to be in the spine. Chiropractor sent me for an MRI and the following quote is the results. I'm supposed to meet with a surgeon on Wednesday to read the film and decide if surgery is necessary. Anyone have experience with what reads like greek to me?
