:)ok . . . so i went to see NS today and he clarified so much today for me. i thought this tidbit was neat.
i have recently developed these sharp shooting pains that start at the base of my skull and shoot up to the front. i was really scared when i felt this. it hurt real bad and of course i believed i was coming down with some other nerve thing. it was getting worse.
i took the brace off and noticed that i have developed a huge crease across the back of my head from the collar!!
i have been wearing this miami j hard collar for almost two months now (faithfully). apparently all of the above symptoms are from the collar.
the NS told me that there are two nerves in the back of your head and the pressure from the collar is causing the shooting pain.
i said "wow . . .i should remove the collar immediately". he wasn't having it. said the pain would go away once collar was removed dec 04.
