ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have had two dissections that prefaced extreme neck pain. My first dissection 6 years ago, started with extreme neck pain for a week leading me to visit a chiropractor. I had a stroke on the table after a manipulation and RCAD. Case solved. No.
Four years later after maybe I’m not sure, a water slide, I had extreme neck pain for a week. I had a LCAD with stroke and have four stents in my LCAD.
The doctors say they can’t find a vascular or genetic reason behind my dissections and I’m left with constant residual effects and the fear that it will happen again. I’m writing in hopes someone out there is going through the same thing I am.
The most “hopeful” thing I was told was by a vascular specialist. That maybe I had a auto immune disorder not yet diagnosed.
