hi all, any theories welcome. i've been suffering from a throbbing neck pain for around 18 months along with extreme light headedness that is gradually getting worse. now have headaches across the forehead several times a day lasting for 20+ seconds. had an mri scan on neck 16 months ago but showed nothing. had a 48hr ecg tape fitted in march that showed nothing. been to see my docs so many times this year but will not send me for any more tests because the last ones showed no serious problem. i'm not getting exercise because of nearly blacking out but told to get exercise. it's become a vicious circle!
had a heart attack 4 years ago, then angioplasty and stent. numerous health problems since then including stomach pains for 8 months, 14 months of itching, 2 years of mouth ulcers and sore tongue, weight loss, but getting nowhere! i used to be so active and happy until 4 years ago. now i'm like a different person because i'm so limited in getting about and always in pain.

  • i've been suffering from a throbbing neck pain always in pain. Have you tried going to a chiropractor? Maybe you need some alignment / adjustment that may aleviate your headaches. As far as the other health issues, it sounds like you have food allergies or something like that. Have you been tested? My doctor told me that the bulk of your nutrition gets absorbed by the intestines. Possibly you have inflamation of the intestines that's blocking you from absorbing the nutrition you need, therefore causing the mouth sores, etc. Hope that helps! Take care ~

  • the neck pain is not from skeletal or muscular, so i assume circulation? not enough oxygen reaching the brain so resulting in bad light headedness and now headaches? have not been tested for food allergies regarding the other problems.
