So I'm 20 years old and I've had a really sore neck for about six years then in February this year I hurt my neck falling off my bike. I went to the doctor who said it would most likely be a pulled muscle and sent me to physio since then I have been going to the physio and my symptoms got worse so she referred me back to the doctor who sent me to the specialist. My symptoms are as follows:
Constant neck pain
Headaches that are on my forehead, behind my ears and at the back of my head
My symptoms get worse when i look up or down
I have not slept through the night since Feb
Muscles are tense and knotted
I had xrays and ct scan and the results came back with nothing so now the specialist has referred me to a neurologist he has also said while I'm still working he doesn't want to put me on any pain killers but the only reason I'm still working is because I need the money.
I'm at the end of my tether panadol and ibuprofen make no difference, its now a long painful wait till I get in to see the neurologist, if anyone could help me I would be really greatful
