neck being stiff and sometimes it makes me want to through up
facial pain
pins,needles, tingling.burning
muscle weakness
throwing up
shock like sensations at times

recently had a cervical mri and my  nuero said that it looks normal, have not had the brain one yet for about 8 mnths
but i did get a ct two weeks ago and it was fine.

Sounds like a tmj disorder, which is what i have had for eleven years and suffer terrible headaches.

Google tmj disorder and check all the symptoms, many of which you have mentioned. Perhaps make an appt
with a tmj specialist and see what they say.

If you have any questions, ask away as I have tried quite a bit for my tmj disorder.

thanks so much, i spend so much time trying to figure it otu because i dont seem to get any helpful answers from my actual doctors. I am of course afraid of the worst because things are just getting worse.

You're welcome She. I can understand that you are worried. TMJ disorders can be a nightmare so I think it is a good idea to get that checked out and at least rule it out or not. All my doctors have told me my case is way out of the ordinary as everything i have tried has not helped my pain. I am certainly here to help you if you have any questions re:tmj. I'm no expert but I can tell you what i have tried and it just may help you out.
Is there any other info you can give us regarding your situation?

take care

You might also try looking at Fibromyalgia and see if your symptoms match anything there. It's not easy to diagnose but if your doctor is made aware that you feel your symptoms are similar to fibro then he can get busy to either diagnose or eliminate it from the list of choices.
