A month and 1/2 ago i started feeling constantly spaced out, and cognitively deficient. A couple of days after i started feeling a constant dull headache... almost like it's brain pressure. A week after that i realized how the dull headache would radiate from the base of my skull / top of my spine and spread through out my head. Now my whole neck aches and the the dull ache at the top of my spine / base of my skull and head intensified slightly.

i use to enjoy intellectual conversation but now find it somewhat difficult because of frequent brain ****s, memory gaps and I feel mentally slow. I constantly have to wrestle with a shortened attention span and a spaced out feeling with passive meditation. I also feel like everything in my head registers things much more slowly... verbally and visually. Sometimes i make really stupid decisions like looking for milk in the co bard... as if i'm so spaced out that i do things without before i think about it..

some history:
I use to be a gym freak until 6 months ago. 2 years ago, While working out i use to feel a pinched nerve in my neck... one time i got really sick after immediately after a gym session where i was lifting heavy overhead. I was in the Navy so they just handed me Tylenol and sent me back to work. I was so sick i could barely move and my neck was aching... I had a lot of cold sweaty nights. It lasted about 5 days and i lost 20 pounds. i thought it was the flu but my two overweight friends saw how skinny i was and ( I s**t you not) decided to lick the rhym of the cup i was drinking out of but never got sick. When i got somewhat healthy I went back to the gym and the same less intense symptoms showed up again.. but i felt my neck hurting first. so i stayed out the gym for a month.

also, i expirimented with Pot this year from June till September.. then again in the beginning of November for a week. But i know people with who smoked for a decade and don't share my symptoms.

unfortunately i can't go to the doctor at the moment because i don't have health insurance. (No you don't get it once out the Service) Can anyone help me out, i've been reading forums all week and didn't get a diagnosis. Does anyone have any information or know where i can ask around?
