Neck pain, headaches and weak legs
A few weeks ago I started getting frequent headaches in different locations: back of head, temples, behind eyes... Nothing very severe and generally quite short lived. I also had some dull aches in the back of my neck. I saw my doctor who said she thought they were just chronic daily headaches and would probably go in a week or two.
3 weeks later, the headaches were just as bad, the neck aches worse and I had an occasional feeling of heaviness / weakness in my legs. I'd also noticed the muscles between my shoulder blades are sometimes very knotted.
I saw my doctor again who has suggested I see a neurologist, which I'm arranging, but in the meantime the heaviness / weakness in the legs is getting worse.
Prior to all this starting, I was doing some strengthening exercises (including some for the back of my neck) due to lumbar disk degeneration and I felt at one point I might have overdone the neck exercises a bit - it felt like I'd slightly strained something.
I've not noticed any vision problems, tingling / numbness etc. or any problems with my arms.
Grateful for any thoughts on what the problem might be and what I should do about it!
