Hi! 1st time here so be patient. British 59yr male. problem started approx 20yrs ago with weird dizzy spells then strange vision like wavey, blured in left eye only and still there when eye closed. Doctor did'nt know but optition diagnosed migrain. Time passed & headaches started followed with bad neck pain. Doc. no idea, thought it was in my mind so sent me to psychiatrist. Told him problem in my head not my mind. After many yrs. I spoke to my sister who said she had same problems and she would write to my Doc. allowing access to her medical records. As it turned out both my sisters had same problem (C-spine disc degeneration or spondylosis) and both had operations ( clowards procedure ). My doc. then sent me for MRI and at last I saw a neuro surgeon who was prepared to operate. I declined the op. as my sisters were unable to work after their ops. plus recovery time was long with no garantees. So I put up with the pain which has got worse and I now have joint and bone pain plus sickening migrains. Other symptems include: head feels like it's in a vice and prickly pain. Also ringing, pulsed ringing & pulsed whooshing. I also had key-hole surgery on left shoulder about 5yrs ago and now my right one is in same pain but my doc. wont do anything. I had to stop work 1yr ago and am fighting to get any one to believe that I have all these conditions. I am seeing mental health practitioner and she helps with the depression but no one will help with my pains. I would be most gtatefull for any sugestions about condition and where I could go for legal advice.
