Bulged disc and lordosis

I've found a culprit for a lot of the headaches I've been having. Do any of you have similar problems?

Decreased disc space height anteriorly. At least minimal left neural foranimal narrowing. Moderately large left extrusion with minimal cord deformation (c5-6).
C5-6 (moderately large left extrusion with minimal cord deformation. No abnormal signal.)

I have two appointments this week with neurosurgeons to figure out what my best options are. I have not yet had my second opinion with a rheumatologist so I still don't know if I have Fibro or arthritis.

Just wondering if anyone else out there is dealing with this.
