Pop rocks are going off in my head. I'm a 47 year old female and have been going downhill with this battle for too long. This most likely sounds crazy I thought I was at first I had decompression surgery for my chiari back in 2000 I was told by surgeon I would be fine it was gone surgery was successful and I truly believed that for almost 14 years in 2014 I Went from feeling fine to not being able to walk and hold my head up without supporting my neck with horrible pain in the lower back of my head where decompression was done feels as if the back of my head could and may just explode worst pressure pain I've ever felt I won't call it a headache bc it's crippling way beyond a headache or migraine and the cold makes it so much more intense and painful I've been getting the pop rocks about a month now they started off like maybe once a day now it's non stop off and on all day everyday it actually feels and sounds as if I put a handful of pop rocks candy in my mouth and their popping. Other people near me can hear the noise if it's quiet at first I thought I was really going crazy the only information I can find on this symptom is what happens when spinal fluid is leaking from your skull and about a month ago I started complaining off having bad taste in my mouth all the time i can not taste anything any more and no matter what I do I have a bad Taste left in my mouth my neck hurts all the time I've also had many spinal fusions and cage implants to my spine my mucus has a new bitter/sour sort of taste to it I know it all sounds very odd and gross but all
The info I have been able to find on these point to spinal fluid leak I no longer have a surgeon who is willing to treat me I've been told by a couple that I've had so much work done no other doctor would want to even attempt more surgeries as the risk is greater then the benefit i don't have private insurance I'm on Medicare so no one seems to offer much if any help I'm just hoping to find out if anyone else experiencing or has in the past any of theses especially curious about the pop rock sensation and if I will ever get my taste back and get rid of the bad taste in my mouth I'm told this is most likely from the fluid leak and that's what I'm tasting i have a heavy headed feeling all the time to the point I'm using my hands to support my neck because my head feels way to heavy to hold up. I have the feeling of having to shrug my shoulders up all the time to balance the weight of my head I'm constantly doing this And the bad back of the head pressure I've been getting for years now they explain it exactly how it feels it's like holding your hand over a hose and blocking the water from coming out it's gonna build up pressure till it blows any help advise or input will be greatly appreciated. God bless
