    I GOT THE RESULTS FROM MY NECK MRI TODAY. MY NECK HAVE BEEN HURTING FOR OVER A YEAR. I THOUGHT IT WAS FROM THE FIBRO. MY MRI SHOWS THAT I HAVE A POSTERIOR DISK PROTRUSION ON C5-6 AND C6-7. CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT THIS MEANS. ALSO WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT?
    THANK YOU.

    I am betting that it means you have a bulging disc. Have you been in to your Doctor yet? I am sure he will give you suggestions on it. I have them in the lumbar spine and they don't feel they are big enough for surgery. Sure to bother me terribly though. Good luck okay.
