i need reassurance. 7 months, same symptoms. they’re getting even worse.

hi, i’m 21 years old and have been having some issues with my neck and head area for a few months or so.

at first, it was alot of pressure in my neck accompanied by dizziness. i went and seen a chiropractor & it helped a little. i’ve been seeing him every week.

i had an mri and ct scan done of my neck & head, & only answers i’ve been given are that i have a straight neck with no curve, & two slightly bulging discs in my spine. 

the part that freaks me out, is that sometimes i feel like i seize up or something for just a couple seconds than it stops. i can’t even explain the feeling. my head gets super shaky & so does my neck. i’m wondering if maybe it’s a pinched nerve. i really don’t get it. i also have spots in my vision most of the day but no doctors can figure out why. i’ve noticed my symptoms get worse later at night than in the morning. i also have ringing in my ears sometimes, & a buzzing/full feeling in my ears alot of the time. 

i don’t know what to do. i’ve been to so many doctors, & they haven’t done anything. i’ve seen a neurosurgeon, but he wasn’t any help at all. my mri of my head came up clear. wouldn’t that show seizure activity? so if it’s not a seizure, WHAT IS IT!? 😔 i’m so over feeling like this. i now have vertigo as well. 

my neck and head start to feel heavy alot of the time. almost like my neck isn’t wanting to hold my head anymore. sounds dumb, but it’s true. i have two kids, this makes it so hard to do anything with them. 😔 everytime i bend down or get up, i get super light headed. i’ve alshad alot of brain fog. rapid eye movement as well.

my neck area is tingling as i type this.

i feel like i’m gonna have a seizure, but never do. it’s weird. 

i have extreme fatigue, & the weirdest part is that these symptoms go away when i drink alcohol.

i saw a neurologist & he thinks it’s my muscles, but i honestly don’t know if he’s right. my next step might be to see a specialist for lyme disease. but my neurologist said he doesn’t think that’s what it is. they never do! 🙄😒 i’m SO OVER THIS. i wanna be me again.

    Maybe have an EEG done. It can detect if you are having seizures without you knowing. MRIs don’t detect seizures unfortunately.

    Are you on any medication?

    Look into atlas subluxation complex. I don’t know much about this but it’s worth a shot.

    Hey Chelsie!

    So odd because what you are describing sounds a lot like what I’m currently experiencing. It has been going on for about a week now. I don’t feel like myself at all and it’s hard to explain to anyone. Chiropractor seemed to help aliviate a bit of the pressure. I don’t get buzzing in my ears but the heavy neck/ head is spot on. Have you noticed any improvement? If so what have you done to do so? I have missdon’t d work the last three days and am scared I’m going to be like this forever and will lose my job and boyfriend. 

    I hope and pray we both find relief and appreciate a response. Have a good day.

      when i seen a chiropractor it helped a little bit as well, but ever since i stopped going my symptoms have just been getting worse. i might order an eeg with my doctor, & maybe see a disease specialist to check for lyme disease. i don’t know though, i seen a neurologist & he thinks it’s something to do with my muscles. just weird because it feels like i’m gonna seize out but i don’t. i don’t understand at all, & i’m over it! been dealing with weird symptoms for the longest time now & i’m just over it.
