Background - Went though a period of anxiety for a good 6 months due to an incident which occured about
a year ago where I was young and dumb and took some extacy, i remember cracking my neck and i had a sudden head rush where my muscles in my body and face and neck went all stiff - My anxiety was due to the fact i thought i was going crazy relating back to the drugs etc. During this period had the head pressure, spaced out feeling, eye strain (when moving head form side to side felt as though eyes were working on a rubber band and could feel the pulling ten fold)
Now that i have rid myself of the anxiety, It seems as though the pressure is coming from my neck at base of skull especially when i am sitting still it tends to build up. Also experienced some balance issues which i have under control - recently visited a podiatrist, i see to be pronating most likely cause by the neck problem sending mixed up signals to my feet so i am getting orthodics to correct this which has helped my balance when i walk.
Blood work done - to rule out thyroid or infections
CT Neck - Which showed retrolisthesis of c4 on c5 and c5 on c6 (currently exploring this ave with an osteo, chiro, GP)
MRI brain - Showed normal
CT Brain - Showed normal
Hopefully the cause of all this is the retrolisthesis found at C4/5/6. I'll keep you all posted as to my next visit with Neuro and MRI of neck. You all may want to get your neck checked out and see if we share similarities.
