Hi! I am a 37 year old woman and I am so happy I found all of ya'll! I have been dealing with severe headaches and neck pain for a year plus now. Have done conventional therapies only to find all my symptoms, headaches, pressure(like an elephant sitting on my head), neck stiffness and pain come right back. I sometimes feel like a hypochondriac cuz some days I dont feel too bad and then I get laid out again! I have surgery on Friday finally to remove my c5-c6 and c6-c7 and do a fusion! I found ya'll because just yesterday I added a new symptom that scared me alot. I was sitting at my computer and was hit by extreme dizziness to where i couldnt sit straight. I found a bunch of ya'll who know how it feels and it actually brought tears to my eyes cuz no one seems to understand. Anyways, I will definitely keep ya'll posted after surgery. Hoping to be able to live healthy again soon! Thanks for all ya'lls input:)
