Hi, I have these bouts of neck pain which last for 2-3 days and then go away. I had got an X-ray done 2 years back and everything was normal at that time. This time I was having the pain for over a month so I got an X-ray done. The report says -
Cervical vertebrae are normal. Intervertebral disc space between c4-c5 & c5-c6 is slightly diminished. Transverse process of c7 vertebra are prominent.
I also have a fatty lump at the base of my neck for some years. I am undergoing physiotherapy as suggested by my physician. Please tell me what is this condition and can this be treated completely?
