I can’t ever remember having numbness before my neck injuries. Still no sign of being diagnosed with an autonomic dysfunction but they still suspect it. Should I get on the phone to my doc again? I swear she is going to start hanging up on me. LOL If you don’t laugh you’ll cry right?! But yeah, having a lot of numbness, tingling only left side. The weird thing is my tongue gets numb and my muscles of mastication become stiff and it is hard to eat when I don’t feel well. My BP has been going crazy all weekend. Really high..seen 170/104 and down to normal when I lay down. But takes a while. Another funny thing is I can feel my BP change after I wake up but I’m still in bed. Any idea as to what is going on Dr Diana?
Excellent advice, Palomino! Yes, it is likely related to cranial nerve compression. I’m writing about that right now in Part 2 of The Driscoll Theory. Was confuses our neuros is that the symptoms are intermittent, and they kind of think if a nerve is damaged, it’s damaged. But, no, I humble believe that our nerves are compressed intermittently, based on our intracranial pressure, position, etc. I’ll have some advice on that in Part 2, but meanwhile, have you had the “Diamox Discussion” with your doctor? What a huge help that was for us!
