God i hope you can help....... 10 years ago i had a car accident, and had whiplash of the neck but when x-rayed they discovered i had 2 of my cervical vertebra's fused together, they were confused and had to get a specialist in from another hospital who concluded i had this from birth. as they weren't any long concerned that this happened in the accident they told me no more about how this would effect me in the future and didn't refers me to anyone else, as years have gone on i have suffering from terrible with next and should pain stiffness, and pins and needles in my back in several areas, i only recently started to look into the factor that this could be caused by my spinal fusion.
list of my symptoms of the last 4 years ( worse since having my children )
* neck pain and spasms
* bad tension headaches running up my neck, around bottom of head and front of head in sinus area
* ear pain
* Pins and needles to right side of spine.
* feeling nauseous
