Hello Hen,
The natural spinal curve of your neck is reduced which may be related to localised muscle tension. The space between the 5th and 6th bone in your neck is reduced and there are small boney growths evident at the edge of these bones.. If you have symptoms related to irritation of a nerve at this level an MRI is recommended.
I hope this helps you.
