So I got the results of my MRI and my general practitioner tells me that everything looks "normal" (I had thought I might have a bulging or herniated disc). So does this mean I'm in the clear, and that all I'm dealing with is strain/torn ligaments and muscle???

Or is it often the case that mistakes are made interpreting MRI's?

Man, this is really good news for me. I really thought my neck was FUCKED. It's been giving me so many problems.

get a specialist in that field to have a look at the mri scans and not a GP.

You need someone who specializes in reading MRIs.

It can definetly differ based on who looks at it.

My dad is a GI guy and found a gigantic tumor on one of his patients scans that somehow the radiologist "missed"

Confirm that the MRI was read by a radiologist. Usually when an MRI is performed there's an accompanying radiologist report. Ask your GP for a copy of the MRI and the report.
