My neck hurts, a lot. Actually, that's an understatement, it's agony. I've had an MRI which showed some minor disc wear and tear and some disc bulging but as it's not impinging on the spinal cord and nowhere near any nerves, they said it's not abnormal. The scan also picked up that my neck is straightening but my GP said this is not an uncommon finding in people with neck pain. I saw a new physiotherapist yesterday who was examining me and also commented on it. I'm still not clear why my neck would be doing this. Does it hurt because it's less curved or is it less curved because it hurts?
