Cervical Radiculopathy?

I have had ongoing issues with pain in neck/shoulder blade which has now progressed to radiating arm pain and numb fingers. GP thinks I have a damaged neck nerve, cervical radiculopathy so I was sent for a cervical spine (neck) x-ray which they say does show abnormalities. I've been referred straight back to the rheumatology department at the hospital for further investigation. GP not very forthcoming with any other info, vaguely mentioned an MRI and/or further tests but said GP's don't treat this sort of thing or have authority to request further imaging such as MRI so I have to be referred. I've booked the rheumatology appointment which is in January. I'm just not sure what to expect really. Has anyone experienced similar?
