Hi my name is Lisa im 40 and this pain business all started in March of '09, well first let me just say ive had lower back pain for the last 21 yrs ever since my oldest son was born and they screwed up on a epidoral. But the upper back pain started in March I woke up one morning dizzy sick to my stomach with the inability to think straight speak properly (thought process was all screwed up). i have had tremors, light and sound sensativity. etc.. so, I went to the doctor who sent me to an ENT had a hearing test done as well as a VNG test proved nothing was wrong with hearing had an MRI which said i had Chiari 1 malformation seen a neurosurgeon who said yes i have that but that is not what is causing my problems another MRI to check spinal flow was good(which is why they say its not the chiari causing the problems), Sent to neurologist and another MRI to check blood flow all good. but i have this pain in neck & in my back btwn shoulders in the spine, if i raise or lower my head i can feel a burning pulling pain in the base of the neck as well as in the spine between the shoulders. Not to mention a constant headache
all the MRI's I have has show nothing is wrong except the Chiari, I have not had a spinal MRI but iam really thinking all of this pain is coming from my upper spine, Is that possible to wake up one day feeling this way?
today i still have the pain the headache and occasional dizzyness. My Neurologist told me yesterday I dont know what is wrong with you and gave me some pain meds to help with the pain...But Id sure like to know what is wrong?
Oh and all the blood work i have had done is normal also
any suggestions on what i can ask my neuro about?
