It says:
Findings: There are disc-spur complexes at the C5-C6 and C6-C7 levels, which create impression along the anterior aspect of the thecal sac at those levels. This is slightly more prominent at the C6-C7 level.
I have pain in my neck, shoulder and arm and my little finger and edge of hand is tingly/numb.
 
Also, if any one else has this problem, could you share your story with me?
 
Thanks!

Hi gardenrat,

Love that name...lol! I'm no doc but sounds like the spurs and touching or pinching nerves that feed your neck, should and arm. That little finger pain is down at the end of that nerve that's being pinched. Not sure what they will suggest for you but I am sure it's painful for you right now. When is your doc appointment? Keep us posted...

Thanks, Chutz. They said they'll call me after they set up an appt for me with a specialist. They didn't say what kind of specialist. I wish they'd take the time to tell me stuff.
And yep, I have a bad burning pain tonight. It really sux.
Thanks for your reply. That sounds about right.
