This sounds like me! Has anyone had a MRI? Mine showed herniation c4-c7 and mod stenosis between a couple of those w/vertigo and dizziness everyday since early Aug. Back in vestibular PT w/emphasis on more neck mobility (downward ROM very limited). The neck pain feels like I've been in a car crash and intense (like wind knocked out of me but not short of breath - I know that doesn't make sense). Looking down is the worst even tho PT has given me some ROM.
I haven't done heavy doses of abx - only herbal protocol, but am willing to try at this point. Anyone had luck w/ any special herbals, pemf, or ozone?
Just turned 44 and have two young kids at home. Otherwise, I'd give up. The pain is horrible and has greatly limited life. Natural, drug-free childbirth was less painful. Cannot plan anything for travel or even to volunteer at kids' school b/c it's so limiting. Reminded myself of that by volunteering for an hour today and paying for it all day long.
Since posting this, this symptom went away. It took a few days. Out of fear I got a few other things checked out that could have caused this and all clear in those areas.
Since this post this symptoms plus all others I was experiencing has either completely went away or very greatly reduced.
I just kept treating with a ABX a little bit longer since this post and a plethora of herbs (which I still take now). The plethora of herbs also includes CNS herbs.
So knock on wood that I don't regress and keep improving.
