I fell and landed on the back left side of my head 13 months ago. The entire left side of my face went numb, left ear crackling/loss of some hearing, daily headaches, shooting pain and throbbing at point of impact up into the top of my head. CT scan and MRI were both negative. Physical therapy aggrivated symptoms. Numbness has subsided some but not completely. The pain is a constant lingering pain as if I just got hit in the head with a bat. Throughout the day there are painful pulses at point of impact then sharp shooting pain up into top/middle of my head. All pain and symptoms are on left side of my head. I feel no pain on the right side at all. Even my headaches are all left sided. This pain is interferring with every little aspect of trying to live a normal life. Can anyone recommend a more detailed test that might show exactly what is going on in my head? Or what got damaged? Living with this pain every day is very frustrating. I hope someone can help me and advise me with what to do....
