Hi To Everybody,
I wanted to share my journey with this community in the hope that I might get some advise. 2 Years ago I decided to visit my GP in the UK and I was complaining of having sweats and anxiety type symptons. I was having hand treamours and my blood pressure was through the roof. The problem was I couldn't vocalise accurately what was happening to me so my GP was finding it very hard where to look. I was sent for a CT scan to rule out a cist on my adrenal Gland, which was ruled out. My ~Thyroid was checked showed nothing, I was complaining that what felt like my Lungs were made of stone and my throat was under irritation and for some time I thought that the right side of my wind pipe did not belong to me and I was permanently trying to clear my throat. On regular visits to the Doctor and after paying £1000's privately for Brochoscopy, Endoschopy, MRI Everything! still nothing dead ends. The one thing that I always maintained to the GP was a strange sensations in the top of my spine.
2 years on and I go to see a Chiroprator who was highly recommended, I said to him that I beleived I could have a spinal condition and asked what his opinion was. He then proceeded to reel off all the syptoms that I had been having and stated that it is a nerve in my lower neck that is trapped, and that my Job on a computer and stress had caused it.
My problem now is I know what it is but I can't fix it. I have had many sessions with the Chiropractor but it is no better. Has anyone else had a similar condition? I can not say it is pain in fact I can say it is not painful at all just incredibly debilitating. On some accossion my whole body will spasm and voluntarily twitch, and it is as if I want itch the very nerves running through the top of my spine. My arms always feel fatigued and I sometimes lose the feeling in my little fingers. I am on Beta Blockers for the Blood Pressure.
Is their a surgical solution for it? Life like this would be unthinkable I am finding it very difficult to concentrate. Having had this and been on the journey to find out what it is, now that I think I have nailed whats causing it I feel frustrated that the physio is not mending me.
I sure feel sorry for anyone who has got what I have and pain that must top it all! I would be grateful to hear from anyone who thinks they could advise me or help me.
