ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
When I was 27 I fell off the top of a semi truck landing on my right shoulder and head. I jumped right up felt fine and went right back to work. After 2 weeks I developed a strange sensation in my forehead that can only be described as pressure,burning sensation that goes across my forehead above my eyes and radiates to the top of my head, starts when I wake up and is there all day long until I fall asleep. It's not painful but very agitating feeling that consumes every day life it's hard to concentrate or be my normal self, I can have a migraine at the same time as the pressure sensation but always have the sensation in my forehead without the migraine. My neck since then has hurt daily with a pain level around 7 out of 10 when my neck hurts worse the sensation in my head increases as well. My neck gets puffy in the middle at the base and is very painful. Since then I have seen over 20 doctors including neurologist,ophthalmologist,chiropractor,otolaryngologists,cardiologist,physical therapy,accupuction,massage therapy. I've been told that it's all in my head,I've been told its migraines,stress,depression,anxiety but no medication,therapy has helped. I had a doctor tell me its sinus issues and had a surgery wich was no help, I've had 6 lumbar puncture, my pressure was elevated and told I need a shunt,2nd doctor opinion said no, I've been on over 37 different medications,including migraine,anxiety,depression,inflammation meds, nothing has helped or changed the outcome of this issue. I've had botox injections for migraines, trigger point injections, tests for occipital neuralgia and many others. I've had so many MRI'S ct scans x Ray's that have revealed nothing out of the ordinary. I've stopped going to doctors because I've spent over forty thousand dollars trying to find out what is wrong,lost hope and I feel more depression and anxiety, and constant neck pain and the additional sensation in my head. I'm married with 2 young boys and I feel like I'm failing as a husband and father because of what's going on with me it takes so much to try to ignore my issues so my family gets the most from me but it's almost impossible to act as if nothing is wrong when it consumes every aspect of my day to day life please help me.
