    Does anyone have these symptoms?

    I have severe numbness in my neck that goes into my head and causes dizziness to the point that I must hang onto something or sit/lay down or fall down, which at my age would not be good. I used to get these symptoms once a week and now I get them many times a day to the point that I am almost house bound. I have asked my Dr. several time what causes this problem and I keep getting the same answer, that it's from the arthritis in my neck. I had an MRI on my neck in 2015 and again in 2017 and the most recent shows no change from the one from 2015???? This problem is getting worse and I am getting no help from my Dr. What should I do?

    RE: Does anyone have these symptoms?

    Hi I was a Traffic Signal Technician and while working 19 feet in the air a semi hit me hit and run. Had several Cervical surgeries since 1996. Am having problems again. Had MRI doctor said nothing there. If you have symptoms for sure and the MRI showed nothing, they go by your symptoms first. MRI sometimes don't show CLARITY as to make an accurate reading this is because of ARTIFACTS. Google MRI ARTIFACTS and you will understand. ARTIFACTS, a metal plate in your neck, breathing, moving mouth, tongue, slightest movement can cause ARTIFACTS a distorted MRI, can be a computer program problem, many things can cause an ARTIFACT that causes an MRI to be easily MISREAD. This just happened to me after 23 years of CERVICAL problems. The next test being your symptoms continue is a MYLOGRAM. A Anesthesologist shoots dye into your spine and they tip you so that the dye goes through the entire spine and a CAT is done. If there is any spinal stinosis, herniation, nerve thats being compress, bulging discs this will definitely show up. My symptoms are numb neck, throat, tongue, forehead, head, arms, hands, fingers, chest, and terrible sensations in chest, breathing problems and loss of balance.You may not have all these symptoms because your problems aren't as severe as mine. In 1979 a drunk hit me he was doing 80 mph I was doing 55, 135mph head-on collision, they revived me at the scene. Too much trumna. I will bet you have C1 through C4 cervical compression somewhere. You will have to have your primary physician give you a referral to see a neurologist to set up a CERVICAL MYLOGRAM / WITH CONTRAST (DYE).

        OH me again, I forgot something, if these symptoms persist, be firm on a MYLOGRAM. Be persistent, sometimes you may need to see another Physician who will help and work with you. Doctors sometimes resent you having some medical knowledge. GOOGLE CERVICAL SPINAL NERVES, IT WILL SHOW WHICH NERVES AT WHICH DISC LEVEL AFFECTS WHICH PART OF THE BODY

        YOUR NOT PAYING ATTENTION, AGAIN A MYLOGRAM, MYLOGRAM, MYLOGRAM, A MRI PERIOD WITH CONTRAST OR WITHOUT CONTRAST CAN HAVE ARTIFACTS, IF THE MRI WITH CONTRAST SHOWED NOTHING AND YOU ARE STILL HAVING PROBLEMS NEED A MYLOGRAM. WHAT IS IT THAT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND. GOOGLE MRI VS MYLOGRAM CAN'T DO ANYTHING MORE FOR YOU. YOU ASKED FOR HELP I GAVE IT TO YOU
