I have been struggling for the past three months with upper cervical head and neck pain. I turned my head suddenly to the right and heard a loud pop right behind my right ear about three months ago. Since then I have had a severe headache with intense pressure right at the base of my skull. I have had a CT, Xray, and MRI both of my brain and neck showing no significant damage. I finally went to an Upper Cervical Chiropractor who said I have a significant rotation of my C1 and C2 vertebrae. He adjusts them and then they rotate within hours. I got to the point when I was going every other day and they just weren't staying. I have had PT (craniosacral), epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, etc. I am exhausted and still in so much pain. I have been taking medication to deal with the pain but what makes this condition so unabearable is that I can feel that my head is sitting wrong. It is the most uncomfortable feeling. Like "nails on a chalkboard" so to speak. I feel trapped and I am desperate to feel better. I have been off work for three months and my short term disability is running out. I manage a law firm and I really need to get back to work. Has anyone struggled with this? It may just be the tendons and ligaments taking a long time to heal but I'm afraid someone is missing something and I just want my life back :-(.
