Question
I got results from my cervical spine MRI, which states
C6-7 small left para central protrusion. This indents the
Left anterlolateral aspect of the thecal sac.
I suffer from migraines and numbness and tingling in bilateral
Hands.

Answer
Sonia,
the findings are mild at best. The finding is not related to your migraines.  The protrusion doesn't appear to be problematic either for your hands. However, your doctor should carefully examine you and figure out if C7 radiculopathy corresponds to your symptoms.
If you have recurring or constant tingling which does NOT correlate to C6-7 level then you need to see a neurologist so they can figure out why you have the symptoms.
