    Hi, about 5 months ago, I was hit in the back of the skull by a hood of an car that I was putting oil in when the hood support failed. Due to this my neck is now curved like in the picture as it was a normal curve before. I just had a few questions since I’m always wanting to learn about new things. In the center shot of the MRI, I don’t see spinal fluid following the spinal cord like I have in “Normal” MRI’s. I also fractured my skull as seen in an Xray and their looking for a possible fracture of the neck as well. Just curious as well what the white spots were on my vertebrae. I’m 20 years of age 6’4 and 335lbs as I played football and was getting ready to play this year until this injury occurred. The shots are from my right hand side as well. Still to this day, I have server migraines, some tingling, and not sure if its related..but feels like my legs fall asleep more often since this happened. The MRI, is from today 10/19 as well

    Thank you for your time.

    The MRI images are incomplete and interpretation is going to be inaccurate. You appear to have central stenosis but it looks mild. You have some reversal of the normal curve of the neck. It is difficult to tell if this is a real problem. The “white spots” on the vertebra look normal but it is diffidult to interpret.
