    Hi,
    I have an old C 67 fusion.
    I had a root canal like year and suddenly got symptoms and rapid changes on MRI.

    I have new c 234 changes.
    I only had issues at C45 before.

    There is reversal of the normal lordotic
    curvature at C2-C5. Craniocervical junction is normal. Bone marrow signal
    characteristics are unremarkable.

    C2-3 small central endplate osteophyte with flattening of the thecal sac.

    C3-4 circumferential disc spur complex with mild bilateral neural foraminal
    stenosis. Again there is mild flattening of the thecal sac.

    C4-5 circumferential disc spur complex with bilateral neural foraminal
    stenosis. Flattening the thecal sac with remodeling of the spinal cord
    contour.

    C5-6 negative

    C6-7 discectomy.

    C7-T1 negative

    Spinal cord is normal in signal characteristics that’s visualized length.
    Cervical medullary junction is normal. Visualized portion of the posterior
    fossa is unremarkable.

    The MRI findings need to be correlated with your symptoms. See https://www.neckandback.com/conditions/how-to-describe-your-history-and-symptoms-of-neck-shoulder-and-arm-pain/ to understand how to describe symptoms.
