Good to hear from you....I'll send you a message as I haven't been on the computer a whole lot, I guess for various reasons: nasty flu, feeling bad at times, busy with family birthdays and halloween festivities and just plainly trying to improve my mental health.
I'll chat with you more later to see how you are doing....I hope still improving despite this post.
I could get intense neck pain/stiffness in th eback of my neck which I would always use some type of balm to relieve... although it never does fully go away unless the dizziness was gone. I think it is the result of tension/stress from the dizzies.... Thats my take,
Have you tried Neuontin or a muscle relaxer? I am having a similar thing but not really dizzy, just weird feeling and some pain that moves around in head. We now think it is from my neck. There are a bunch of nerves in the neck. Wish I had an answer. Neurologist gave me Neurontin but I haven't taken it yet. My PCP said I should as the muscles are full of nerves and it will allow the muscles to relax.
I am really surprised that you haven't been given it. Right now I am trying Valium for muscle spasms but I have friends that swear by Neurontin so after I give my self a couple days with the Valium I am going to try it. Look it up on internet for more info and you might ask your PCP about it. It is very widely used and available generically. It is not a pain killer per se but calms the nerves endings which can kill the pain. It is very cheap.
