Hi im new to this forum thank you to anyone that leaves a reply , ill try keep my story as short as I can . My names Allison and im 31 years old when I was 19 I suffered a c7 t1 fracture which I was told that will heal on its own which it has since this ive been getting headaches near daily lucky to go 5 days without a headache when I first started getting these headache I never got neck pain or anything else in the last 4 years ive been getting daily neck pain when moving my head my muscles in my neck and shoulders are chronic tightness I have sore upper arms and lower when moving them also my arms feel heavy to use I wake up a lot with pins and needles in my hands plus I have constant low energy were I fell like doing nothing all theres symptoms combined with daily headaches . My headaches are normally one sided but can be on both sides I don't get sick with the headaches I do go to see a chriopracter and physiotherapy when I see them they say my c2/3 is locked and have muscle pasms on the other un affected side of the neck sometimes the other joints are locked c1 c2 c4 ect when they unlock my joints I get relief for max 2 weeks but the headaches are never completely gone the pain just comes down from a 8 to a 2 . Ive had blood tests there normal ive had a mri on neck 4 years ago and only had a very mild disc protrusion at c3/4 which iam told of a neurosurgeon this will not cause these symptoms I also had a mra on the blood vessels on my brain and was normal othere then a small cluster of (cavnomas sorry cant spell it ) which am told will not cause my problem im at my wits end with feeling like this for so long I really don't no what to do im missing out on living cause im so tied all the time and theses headaches are bringing me down . Does anyone else get the same problems as me and found out what was wrong or causing it im desperate . sorry for such a long story .Welcome to Spine-Health
