I had been overmedicated on psychatric medication from Sept. 1997-May 2006. Had a Dystonic Drug Reaction Feb. 27, 2003. Don't remember the exact age but sometime between 9-12 years old slammed against a wall and then adjusted by an untrained person. Whip lash about 2001. Seeing a chiropractor for 6 1/2. First chiropractor for 1 1/2 years the second one eneded up correcting what teh first chiropractor did expecially with the top bone of my neck. I am majorly concerned with the after affect of all the medications I had been taking and the injury to the base of my brain.

March 2007 I had pain radiating from my right buttox which caused pain and numbness in my toes. The pain is gone but the slight numbness is still there. I also have numbness in my right hand. I have pressure the top bone of my neck. I have found that I have a tendency to articulate words, speak rapidly, stutturs or speak normally. My head starts hurting when I try to remember something. I have vision changes like going from clear to blurry. Bright to dim. At times not able to understand what people are saying around me. I couldn't control my behavior, it is like something took over and I am on for the ride. It is scary when it happens. The symptoms increase when I am under stress. I think majority have been happening over the years but I think has gotten worse. I will be getting a neurological examination this Friday. I need to know what is going on.
