I was told about ten years ago that my top 3 vertabre are infused together and that that is what causes my headaches. Since then I have had even worse headaches and upper back pain. More recently, I have also had blackout periods lasting up to an hour. The Doc's have done Catscans, MRI, xray's, EEG, EKG, and a 24 hour monitor at home....All have come back clean. Now they are wanting me to go through a complete cardio test. My aggrevation is that nothing is being done about my symptoms which are: Severe headaches, blackouts, upper back pain, and neck pain, I also just feel miserable all over and tired all the time. My blood pressure ranges from 135 over 90 to 189 over 160. My pulse ranges from 45 bpm to 188 bpm. Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated...

  • I think you need a complete neurological check up. This pain very well could be related to your spinal problems. An MRI may be needed. I am an RN and have spinal problems myslf that have not yet been fully diagnosed yet after 6 months of tests.

  • I have had a catscan, EEG, and EKG, and am now waiting for a ECG and TILT test. I have had MRI's done in the past and no docs even mentioned the infused vertabre...but who knows! I am starting to feel like a test rat. However, whatever it takes, I will do. I was just looking for someone who might be able to point us in the right direction. I will have my Doc look inti another MRI and maybe he can specify the vertabre...Thanks, JoDee
