Dr.B ordered an MRI after my MVA. Just R sided protrusions at c5c6 c6c7. (No flexion/extension though) No chiari malformation but I still have pressure at the base of skull. Not 24/7 now but it comes and goes. Why is it everytime I sit at the computer I start to feel a mini spell, often when I work also (massage therapy) I believe it is the possition of my head (Flexion). Any suggestions? Sarah Hayes(doctorate in osteopathy) did orthopedic testing for alar and transverse ligs in which she stated her concern for instability and she also said I had decreased blood flow to the brain and scar tissue that has my C1 adhered to the temporal bone. I have not mentioned that to Dr.B yet. Had colonography (no hernias,elevated amount fecal matter), chalk drink to check digestive sys, CT angiogram heart-normal(done because of chest pain I get), angiogram neck just recently-no dissection(this chiro injury was 3 years ago), ultrasound of carotid artery-was reported poss mild stenosis but angiogram denied, funny thing is Dr. Loane showed me my MRI in which it is apparent that the left carotid is dilated in comparison. Also we looked at C1 and it is apparent to me that the C1 is shifted to the left. He stated that what they look for is fractures though. I can not seem to figure out how to look at it properly on my own computer. CT Angiogram of neck I will be getting a copy to see for my own eyes too. After the chiro injury for 10 months I could hear and feel my pulse right behind my left ear. The symptoms I had right after the adjustment were like a dissection. But no angiogram was done. I could not get out of bed for 3 days and by the time I got to see a doc I believe it was assumed that if I made it this long then I probably didn’t have a dissection. MRI brain post chiro-no pituitary tumour. EKGs, heart monitor which never picked up any of the heart racing that I have. But I invested in a heart monitor watch and regular blood pressure monitor. It is very apparent to me that my heart rate goes up considerably after rising from rest and sometimes in bed too for no reason. Plain xray after mva of neck no fractures, hmmm what else, tons blood work but I am not up on that YET. I have struggled through this so bad and I’ve lost the active life I used to have. All I want is for the diagnosis to be clear and state what I know that it all started with the chiro then worse by the mva. I am struggling through every day whether these docs see it or not. I believe they look at me and see I’m only 33 and slim and I do physical work, how can I be as sick as I say I am. I am, I just refuse to take away the life my kids and I know even if it is making me suffer more. Sole provider,self employed, never able to get disability insurance or life now on anything. Can you see my slight dilema here. I want someone to believe me and not say that it is just a panic attack. But No mention of EDS but I see her tomorrow and I will ask. Thank you for the reply!! It means more then you know to just have someone listen I guess and not judge.
