I know, Im kind of a pain in the butt, but I can't find what it means on the internet. I was hoping someone could answer my question.

It says on my MRI report (along with many other things) that there was increased signal visualized in the region of the interspinous ligament at C2-3. Then minimally at c3-4 as well as a tiny bit at c5-6

Does anyone know what that means? I know that so many of you have knowledge on this stuff and I really have no one else to ask.

Thanks guys *blushes*

If I read an article right it means there is damage to the nerve there causing you pain.
