Several years ago I hurt my neck, I never went to the doctor. Then I started getting severe migrains headaches. I ended up taking generic tylenol to try to get rid of them. I get several a day, and end up taking generic tylenol like candy just to relieve the pain. Well Several years later, when I was about 38 I ended up in a ditch on my way to a new job. My wife was with me, thank god. She said I had a seizure behind the wheel. I don't remember any of it. She had to tell me what happened. I went to a doctor and a neurologist, they both agreed and said I had Grand Mal Seizures. I've never had a problem as a young boy until now. I've had at least 3 since I've been diagnosed. Trying to regulate the medication. The doctor had me do several tests, like a cat scan, mri, sleep study. everything come back normal, except the sleep study. They told me I have one abnormal brain wave in the same place where I hurt my neck. The doctors also told me that the headaches were small seizures. Well I hurt so bad one day I went to a chiropractor, they took x-rays and he told me that my neck had been broke. I've told my doctor about my neck being broke, he doesn't seem to concerned. I can't seem to find any help with this matter. This has affected my sleep, and my life. I live in Missouri, I've tried everything else that I could think of. I'm in alot of pain and it's affecting my job performance.

  • I would say that you have post traumatic migraines, and seizures. Headaches are not small seizures. The cervical fracture may have been a wedge -type fracture or mild compression fracture, which are stabile, and therefore not the type to necessarily cause any nerve damage. I wish you the best.
