Thanks Blu from me too!
I suspect spinal stenosis may be causing symptoms, but maybe not the cervical dystonia until I get some more testing and talk to my pain doc. I've started having a bit of urine leaking, had no idea it could be connected with cervical spine until you prompted me to read!!!! I thought it trouble with lower lumbar spine trouble, for which I am getting injections, or maybe pressure from uterine fibroids and tortuous sigmoid colon. I knew about
cauda equina, but not the cervical connection.
Trigger point injections hurt, had them for shoulder pain but didn't work, although they did help neck pain, which I hadn't even complained about
. My neck pain isn't tic-like, more constant.
Thanks Babette for the good discussion. You're asking questions I didn't think to ask.
Thanks cogito for the link. Some of these symptoms sound right too. I'll have to discuss all these possibilities with the pain doc. My ortho appt for shoulder isn't for a while yet, but he doesn't do anything with spine anyway. Neuro appt next month, but I don't want to confuse this with my main issue of headache. Time to do lots more reading!
