Hello- I am a 38 year old female who has had neck pain for several years. I had two accidents involving my neck- in 2001 a 35 lb box fell off a shelf at work and hit me right on top of the head. I went to a chiropractor and they treated me for six weeks before saying they thought I had been born with a neck condition; so my insurance stopped paying for it. In 2003 I had a car accident in which I had a pretty bad concussion.
Since those two accidents, I've had this feeling of a ton of pressure at the base of my neck, with alot of pain. I was told by my first chiropractor that I had no curve in my neck and that three of my vertabrae were fused.
Recently I started a job that requires alot of bending. I've noticed my neck is really hurting now. Also, for the past several weeks Im getting a wierd sensation of little shocks in my arms, legs and feet. I get slightly dizzy at times as well.
I have gone to two doctors now. One did a ct scan and one did an mri. Both of these have come back normal. I feel so frustrated! My work thinks I am making this all up, my doctors tell me Im just stressed..how can I be having the same exact pain I had when I hurt my neck, and one doctor sees fused vertabrae, but the tests now see nothing??
Not sure what to do, its really causing me alot of problems trying to do my job....
