Suddenly Dizzy and Numb Hand
Hi Spine Health, this is my first post and I'm hoping you guys can give me some help on what I've been going through. I'll start by saying I'm a 23 year old male, living in Canada who has been dealing with neck discomfort and pain for about 7 years now.
I have a history of combat sports (wrestling and karate) and weight lifting, which I believe caused my symptoms. The wrestling and weightlifting are the main culprits I believe. Let me explain, during one tournament I found it hard to hold my head up between matches and while doing a seated bench press I looked to the right and something strained and tightened up on the left side of my neck. Ever since those 2 injuries I've slowly gotten worse in terms of my neck being uncomfortable and pain full. I've tried chiropractic and anti depressants. Chiro and other X-rays showed me I have no curve in my neck and that it's actually going the opposite direction. So now within the past month I've developed even more symptoms and went to the er after my left hand and lips went numb. After I came home I've felt very dizzy with bouts of vertigo if I move around enough. This whole situation is really stressful and I cry a lot and am very depressed because of it. I really don't know what to do, I don't think I can work safely if I'm off balance all the time.
My symptoms are: neck pain
ringing in ears
hearing seams to cut out at times in one ear or the other
poping/ cracking in neck when breathing
numbness in left hand
feels like I have scoliosis
neck feels like it gets pulled to left side
Anyone who is going through the same or has gotten relief of these symptoms please help me as I'm in a very low place mentally and physically.
