Someone else who has generally been taken for other purposes than back pain and it noted that it looks terrible as far as degeneration and disk bulges,but are as happy as a clam..
Now that you mention it, a few years back I woke up in the night with terrible neck and right shoulder pain, and by the time my wife had gotten me in to an emergency room it had gotten so bad that I couldn't lift my right arm to sign the hospital's forms (which made them rather unhappy - as I can't even draw a stick figure with my left hand). Subsequent visits to an orthopedist, an MRI by him, etc. and he finally said to me, "Well, you display classic symptomology of a pinched nerve at C... [I forget exactly what vertebra/e] in the cervical spine, but I don't see anything on the MRI so that must not be it. Here's a prescription for physical therapy. Good luck!"

I always assumed it must indeed have been a pinched nerve, MRI evidence for such or no.

Took me a couple of months to get back to where I could raise my right arm above my head.
