It sounds that your neck pain may be related to your neck position.
The MRI shows structural changes but it has to be of a certain size for the MRI to detect a problem.
If you had a stretched or pinched nerve in the neck in certain positions then an MRI may not always pick this up. (It would pick up a ruptured disck for example)
You may benefit from a cervical support pillow with the idea to keep your neck in a more neutral position.
A chiropracter may benefit you in this particular situation.
Using an anti-inflammatory may be of some help.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions/information or discussion.
I will be happy to get back with you.
