A little background to preface this: I am a 19 year old male and have been having neck pain for over a year now. The pain sometimes goes away for maybe a day or 2 at a time if I'm lucky, and the pain varies, sometimes it can sting if I touch my neck or put pressure on it, but when I'm not messing with it it's just a dull nagging pain that's extremely annoying.
The pain started when I was cracking my neck one night (I haven't cracked my neck since, the doctors told me it was terrible to do) and all the sudden my whole body went numb, so I went to the ER and they took a CT scan for any signs of stroke or artery dissection, they found nothing. So I thought okay, this will probably go away soon, but oh boy was I wrong. The pain stayed and about 4 months after the Ct scan and me having this pain I went to a neck and spine doctor who told me to get an MRI done to check for any cervical disc herniations. So I went and got the MRI, the doctor said my discs were fine. And here I am almost a whole year later and the pain has not gone away and I'm sick and tired of it, I can't live the rest of my life miserable like this. I'm really lost and don't know what to do. Since 2 doctors said there was nothing wrong, I don't really want to go to another one again and waste even more money just to hear that I'm fine when I know for a fact that I am not.
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
