Hi everyone I'm new and I'm posting on this forum for the first time. I have recently been told that I have a hindbrain herniation from a Neurologist. To summarise my history I had a slipped disk diagnosis via MRI 2015 and have been tingle free for some time. I got married last year and had botox in the base of my skull and neck to deal with headaches and was copeing ok until the headaches started again in Dec 2016 and nothing worked so went back to physio. Then I took my kids trampolining in Feb 2017 and was kneeling down on the trampoline when my sons bounced and my neck snapped back and ever since then I have been in pain with the return of the tingling and each week has seen new symptoms added to the list. I was referred back to the Neurologist by my doctor as my symptoms were tingling in hands down the spine, vertigo, sickness urge incontinence, permanent headache in lower skull, ears with screaming tinnitus with neck shoulder and back pain. Driving over bumps caused pain surges and sometines the tingling would occasionally spread further like scatica was across the middle of my back into one foot but this was not a constant. Three weeks after my referral I saw the Neurologist by this time I'm tingling in both hands both feet down my left buttock and up through my whole spine particularlly across the back a of my ribs continually. The Neurologist had the MRI I had done 2015 in front of him and mentioned a slight hindbrain hernation on scan and booked me in for an MRI of my neck and lumbar spine the following week with a follow up appointment for the results two weeks later. His concern was that although the tingling etc could be related to the hernation that my headache is not typical in that it's always there like a pressure pain of varying levels but it's not brought on by coughing or sneezing etc. I am sad to say in this short time my symptoms are increasing daily. I tingle into my neck now and i keep having the dizzy like spells on when i get out of breath through hill walking etc and i can only describe it as being in a bomb scene in a movie.. my ears are screaming and i go completely disoriented and my vision goes like someone has put on some strong prescription glasses. Then in calms down quickly but i feel a bit like I'm spaced out which is then followed by a huge adrenaline rush for a couple of hours. I just don't know what's happening are these normal chairi symptoms? I can remember years back sneezing making my head hurt but the headache now is permanently at the base of my skull and occasionally in my sinuses Sneezing or coughing does not bring it on or make it that worse just a bit more pressurised.. My ears ring all the time but sometimes scream for more apparent reason and i feel like i want to be sick most of the time and on top of that Im exhausted. My head hurts all the time to varying degrees. Has anyone else had these symptoms?? Is this was Chairi suffers have? I guess I'm a little afraid as everyday more often than not, i feel a little worse although. Today I don't even feel safe driving as I'm so dizzy and sick I've just come to bed. Can anyone make sense of what's happening to me???
