I’d have to say this is likely the biggest complaint of EDS/POTS based on the number of posts & views! This & fatigue are a close tie for me.
I’ve struggled with this for years. I began complaining to my doctor about this & daily headaches in 2000. I was told they were tension headaches and sent to a chiro. It didn’t help. Fast forward through a sports-related neck strain and 3 whiplashes (my car is certainly a target for bad drivers), and 2 falls (over a dog gate & down a flight of stairs) and it’s still here. I’ve tried PT, more chiro care, OTC meds, ergonomic workstation adjustments at work, acupuncture, steroid injections, & massage. NOTHING touches it. Except for my c-collar! Best $10 I’ve ever spent- haha.
Results? I have a little more energy today. Could it be the coffee with an extra shot of espresso? Maybe :). I think my vision is a TINY bit less blurry today. Well, it was when I woke up anyway. Hmmm… the neck pain is back and so is the blurry vision. Related? Heck yes!
Also, I think my voice is higher pitched when I’m in the collar. Anyone else? Why would that be?
