Last May, I got into a car accident. A very minor one. No damage to my car at all. The guy who hit me was going very fast before hitting me though, as I heard his brakes screeching for about 2 or 3 seconds before being surprised by the impact (I was rear ended). The next month, I was just sitting in my room when all of a sudden I started to feel a weird sensation in my head and neck. My parents called an ambulance and they checked my heart rate and blood pressure and it was just slightly higher than normal due to the panicked state I was in. I decided to not go to the hospital. A couple of months later, the weird sensations intensified, giving me anxiety for the first time in my life. Then came minor dizziness, that almost pulsated (I could feel the dizziness happen somewhere in my body. Almost like a pulse, if that makes sense. The dizziness is very constant today, and I also get weird headaches that last all day or days! I also have light and sound sensitivity, with sometimes having trouble maintaining my balance while walking. While trying to find answers, I got none from any traditional doctors I’ve been to so far. This condition has sent me to the ER many times. I’ve gotten almost all the tests you can get (EKG, blood work, CT scan of my neck and head). Nothing wrong in either of those. The neck scan is the most recent, in January. My neck hurts, so I went to see a muscle/skeletal doctor last week and they said everything is fine in that regard, but that I should see a neurologist. I made an appointment for next week. The only answer I’ve received is from an upper cervicales doctor who said my top vertebrae (atlas) is tilted to the left, and that could be the cause of everything. I received a treatment and it hasn’t done very much (no cracking involved). It’s been almost a year of this and it’s taken over my life. Some days I cannot get out of bed. I’m nervous that it’s a brain tumor or something serious like that. I’ve heard that CT scans are not reliable in terms of finding something in the soft tissue. My head has been pounding with no pain for almost 3 days now. Medicine does nothing for it. Today, I was on the phone with a friend and out of nowhere, everything he said started to echo, and I felt a sense of confusion hit me. As we continued to talk, I struggled to find words and would often pause in between sentences to figure out what word was next. My right leg felt short when I walked, and I felt off balance as well. Someone please help!
