Re: What is wrong with me?!
Hey lexy, Years and years ago I suffered from headaches and they were my only symptoms for over a year. I even went so far as to to A Headache Specialist in Nashville ( I live in Chattanooga), they dx me with tension headaches, migraines,pretty much everything, even rebound headaches from meds like advil and tylenol. Long story short is that I researched my own symptoms online and found I had symptoms of a herniated discs, as I too had tingling and numbness in my arms and hands. No doctor would listen me, they did not like the fact that I was telling them I had the exact symptoms others had with herniated cervical discs. After about a year, my headaches stopped and the pain went down instead of up, terrible neck pain, pain between shoulder blades, hands going numb etc. I FINALLY found a doctor that did order an mri (Ihad had xrays that showed nothing) and indeed I did have TWO herniated discs! This took FIVE long awful years to get the correct dx. I would recommend you asking around here for people that live near you for a doctor that will LISTEN to you and then make an appt asap! Please do not suffer for five years like I did. YOU know you body better than anyone girl! Best of luck to you....btw, where do you live?? -katie
