Okay, so I'll be 100% honest, I'm a 22 year old newbie, and I'm not even 100% sure that I've posted this in the right area.
About 4 or 5 days ago I had a sudden onset of pain, starting right below what I would describe the base of my skull and went all the way down my back. I couldn't move my head, I couldn't move my body, all I could do was sit and cry and hope I didn't move because lord only knows, it hurt worse than anything I'd felt in my life until then. Anyway, It finally gave way, leaving a fairly decent amount of pain in my back. I didn't think anything of it, wrote it off as a hard day at work, probably no big deal. Well, last night it happened again, only this time more severe. It felt like my neck couldn't even hold the weight of my head anymore, and if I even moved a little bit, I just about screamed out in pain. I guess I could say it felt like my head was going to be ripped off... I had to have my boyfriend come over and help me lie down because the pain was so severe. It lasted about 15 minutes or so, and laying down didn't help at all. My boyfriend tried to help by rubbing my neck, and he said there were no knots, there was no strain, he didn't know where it was coming from, even worse was that him rubbing my neck only made it feel worse! When the pain finally went away this time, I was left with the worst headache (quite possibly even worse than a migraine) that I have ever had in my life. I really don't know what to do. I have no insurance and probably wont for a long time, DHS wont help me, and it's getting bad. I had a small episode at work today and a small one just minutes before I began to write this. I'm just at a loss for what to do, and I wanted to see if anyone might have any ideas... Please if you know anything, I would love some advice and I'd be forever grateful.
