My problems started in nov 2014 with severe headaches and my hands going numb. i didnt have a pcp so i saw a doctor in town who said the problem was with my neck and without my permission he proceeded to crack my neck several times. i left his office in more pain then when i got there. that same night a friend of mine who is a chiropractor told me to come to his office where he found my neck was dislocated. after treatment a few days later i was still in pain. I then was sent to an orto doctor who i had seen for a year he did cortozone shots and did xrays and finally said there is no curvature to my neck and he didnt knoow what else would help me. in 2015 my syptoms continued to get worse at this point the headaches are still there and my hands arms and feet are numb and tingly. i had 2 siezures so they sent me for a eeg thinking that was the issue. they also treated me with shots of magnesium and potassium and torodol thinking it may be cluster headaches. after my eeg he sent me to a nerologist who thought it was ms because at this point im still having headaches and pain throught my body and numbness he ordered a mri i seen him one time and he was to call with the results and tell me what they could do to help me well the staff forgot to call me and when they finally did after a month the nurse said. your results are back you have chairi and we are working with you insurance to find a nerosurgeon for you to see oh and by the way try not to cough or sneeze to much because you can die. talk about stress. i was floored at the way i was being treated but then after a month of fighting with the insurance i found a nerosurgeon who i could see. so i have been going to him for a few months now and he has horrible bed side manner hes in the room with you for 5 mins. he has ordered many test. so far i have had a cine mri and a ssep test. he said the cine mri wasnt helpful it does show chairi. the ssep test has shown i have a delay in my right leg. he has now ordered an emg on both arms and said to make an appointment with his nerololgist for pain releif and after the test come back he will talk decompression surgrey but he doesnt know if it will help me. so now i have horrible headaches and numbness in both arms and legs (not all the time) my memory sucks floaters in my vision and have lost hearing in my right ear. i feel like im loosing my mind and im forced to treat myself for pain. No Doctor has taken the time to explain anything that is going on with me. any advice you can give would be great im a mom of two boys who need me .
