Hello... I'm a 42 Year old male with controlled blood pressure with the following symptoms and story: Approx. 2 years ago I went to the ER with left side numbness (cheek/arm) with no real diagnosis. I had an MRI, CAT Scan, Xrays and blood work. They told me that I had a enlarged blood vessel on the right side of my brain (venus angioma) but it was probably there since birth and didn't feel that it had any impact on my symptoms. I was sent to a neurologist where I also had an MRI done and found slight bone spurs at C3/C4 but it didn't appear to be an issue as well. At that point she took a wild guess and said that I had Cervical spondylosis, and sent me to therapy for 6 weeks. Everything went pretty well, after 6 weeks i felt probably 70%. Approx. 1 month after that I again started the issues with neck pain (center of neck), occasional numbness in both arms and hands and occasional numbness in face and lips. When I really notice it is when in vehicle backing out and turning my head to the right I feel tingling in my left arm and hand. At this point I believe anxiety plays a huge factor. After 2 years I have been through 6 MRI's a Spinal tap which ended up having to get a blood patch, and numerous medications. So where do I go from here. I am very active and enjoy coaching baseball, football and basketball and this has really put a damper on the life with my kids.
At this point my symptoms are as follows with no diagnosis: Neck pain in center of spinal area. Occasional numbness/Tingling in both arms and hands, occasional facial/lips tingling and obviously slight depression.
