Hi, i am 17 years old and have been dealing with weird symptoms since i was assulted 3 years ago by some girl. I was diagnosed with migraines, short term memory, slow processing, and much more a year after the whole thing happened. But i havent only been dealing with migraines, i have had very wierd symptoms that all the doctors cant explain. About a year ago i had this outragiously painful popping in my head followed by a headache right after, i went to school and passed out from the poppings pain. i was rushed to the ER and they took a MRI and it came out good. so i was sent home. now on december 15 i was eating dinner and i had a pain go through my right side of my face, followed by a numb face and a blurred right eye. the next morning i woke i woke up with the whole top of my head and all the way back was numb. then 2 days later my ear started hurting and is only getting worse. i havent slept good in 2 weeks and barely been eating because for some reason i havent been hungry. i have had a MRI and multipal tests done but nothing is showing up. and doctors told me there is nothing they can do for me. this is my last hope. so please someone help me!

  • From the sound of it, you might have nerve damage in your neck. I was reading up on whiplash or neck injury and some of your symptoms were listed. See http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/w/whiplash/symptoms.htm

  • I agree with gr8. Although that numbness many times means a stroke, I highly doubt that you have had a stroke in this case. So I tend to agree that it sounds to be nerve damage. Is your doctor looking at that? I have had nerve damage in my back and its caused numbness down my legs. And unfortunately, sometimes unless surgery is performed to decompress the nerves, it could be a permanent thing. But given your young age, I think that they will be able to narrow it down to where the nerve is pinched and repair the damage before aything permanent happens. By the way, as far as eating goes...who could enjoy eating while they are going through what you are going through?? Please note that I am not a doctor and am just giving you some info as compared to what I have gone through in the past.
