Okay so I had my mri on the 13th and results were good just thick mucus in sinus. I also had e brain ct scans all negative as well. I've been having these horrible headaches that make me throw up and stay in bed. My neck will start hurting and the pressure is unreal. I feel like total crap, I seriously don't know how much longer I can take this pain. My vision has been changing since May 2014 and now anytime I see lights I have double vision and it's like blinding me. What could this be? My doctor referred me to a Nero and optomolgist. He wants to do a spinal, I think we should do it as well. I want answers I seriously can't keep feeling like this anymore. Ugh any advice on what to do for headches and neck and shoulder pain please. Thanks.

Well done getting through the scan I know how worried you were and that takes some doing and I am really pleased to read that they found nothing sinister

However I know you need answers so yes I would go & get it done as well

Good luck and let us no how you get on :-)

Do you get knots in the muscles of your shoulder? I've had this for several years, exactly as you describe. I'm just now getting over a spell. My neurologist says it's occipital neuralgia. The neck and shoulder muscles tighten so badly they compress your occipital nerve, causing the pain and nausea and eye issues. I find that heat helps a bit, but I've been prescribed strong muscle relaxers and pain medicine. I'm so sorry for your pain, and I hope this helps a bit.

All the best to you,
