"White" area on a cervical spine MRI indicates bone or arthritis from bone spicules (extra bone growth that can pinch nerve root.
Can you attach the report?
May I assume your pain has increased? Are you taking any medications? Any numbness in either arm?
Any additional thoughts, questions?

yes looking now
I reviewed your films and do not see any obvious fractures. I do see evidence of arthritis which is most likely the cause of your neck pain. Have you discussed this study with your doctor?
This would be normal for arthritis in the neck to make your head and ear have pain because all of the muscles in this area are attached to each other. So any movement of your neck can cause pain. May I suggest you take Advil or Aleve for the pain until you see your doctor.
