Please help me translate the following into "english". I am having problems with the cervical spine but need help to understand the MRI report. My primary internist referred me to a neurosurgeon and I'm not sure whether or not I should go. Can anyone help me determine the severity of the report? Thank you so much!

Impression:

C4-C5: There is mild disc degeneration present. There is a posterior bony ridge present which does partially efface the ventral thecal sac and results in mild central canal narrowing. There is also mild facet and uncovetbebral joint hypertrophic change appearing to result in a mild degree right foraminal narrowing.

C5-C6: There is disc degeneration present and there is a broad posterior protrusion, partially effacing the ventral thecal sac and resulting in mild central canal narrowing. Bilateral facet and uncovertebral joint hyertrophic change is evident, resulting in moderate right foraminal and mild left foraminal narrowing.

C6-C7: There is disc degeneration present and there is a mild posterior disc protrusion, partially effacing the ventral thecal sac. Bilateral facet and uncovertebral hypertrophic changes are evident, resulting in moderate left foraminal narrowing.

This MRI is from 5/19/2005.

My symptoms now are different now, I am having moderate neck pain especially turning to the left, trouble swallowing, tingling and a hollow feeling in the left neck to head. Also a severe burning feeling at the distal end of my cervical spine.
