Two years ago, I was in a car accident, but in hindsight my problems statred about 6 monthes before then. But the car accident aggrevated my symptoms. The whole right side of my body is out of wack. Severe headaches on theright side of my head, Severe excruciating burning upper/lower back pain, sciatica in the hip. I use to have very low blood pressure, now it's sky high! I use to be very active, now I can hardly get off the couch. I've been tested for lupus, RA, AIDS, thyroid problems, nerve conduction test, had many MRI's, x-ray's, etc. Been to a neurologist. They found NOTHING!!! Finally, after a year, they found a tumor in the right side of my neck, 7 inches long, leading all the way down into my shoulderblade. My lymphnoids are also swollen. It's been almost a year since I've had the tumor removed and still in chronic pain. I am also on Oxycodone, 40mg every 4-6 hours, Baclofen, and Motrin 800. Also on an antidepressant, of corse all docs think you are crazy, right! My primary doctor has come straight out and told me that she doesn't know whats wrong. I"M only 27 years old! Wife and mother of 4. My kids and spouse is fed up. Don't know what to do!!
