Thoracic and Cervival Disc issues

Hi,

Recent CT scan revealed that I have minor bulge in C5/6 and C6/7. The first time i had this injury was in 1999, a severe case of whiplash resulting in complete 'lock-up' of my neck and upper back movement.

The current CT scan also showed however T1 and T2 vertebra appearing quite 'worn' on the left side where the rib connects to the vertebra. What does this mean? How could this have happened, and could this be contributing to my ongoing thoracic pain and arm numbness?
