    Iíll give a 3rd comment on the neck. Always have had neck issues, even before my recent flight down the stairs. I have a chiropractor that I like, and about finding the inflamed joint and addressing the muscle and lig/tendon group that related to it via joint manipulation, stretches/exercise, massage, NSAIDs, and ice/heat. A big part of my neck recovery from recent and past issues has been sleeping and pillow support. I can tell immediately in the AM if my neck wasnít supported right because I was favouring a side rather than sleeping on my back - which is my usual sleep position and for what my pillow is designed for.

    Best of luck in your diagnosis and recovery!

    Happy to say CT came back normal. Only discouraging thing is that people seem to think that means you are just imagining the symptoms and now ready to spring back to action overnight.

    Good news then.

    Sounds to me like could be neck/muscular. I get bad headaches when stress/overuse/bad posture/bad sleep conspire together. Learn to massage your own neck, shoulders, and head muscles. Take gentle yoga classes.

    Yeah I have this pretty hard foam ball thing like 8" in diameter. Massaging the back right side of my neck with it against a wall = incredible.

    Glad the CT scan came out good. I agree that you should see an "expert", not a GP. I have no concussion experiences, but as for neck issues, I have had neck and upper back issues my entire adult life. Numerous things have helped over the years. A memory foam cervical pillow (basically a half cylinder, like this) is the only pillow I use. Took a little getting used to, but it supports the neck in its natural position and helps a lot. Posture is also key. Another thing is that because of bad posture, our heads hang forward all the time. Yet people feel their neck and upper back being sore and try to stretch those muscles, which may seem intuitive but is the exact opposite of what they need. The muscles need to be "fired", to contract, not be stretched. So if your neck is sore, try to (gently) tilt your head back and clench (again, gently) those upper back and neck muscles, hold for a little bit, and let go. At first, it may seem "wrong", but if after doing this gently and releasing, you feel good for even a moment, that's a sign that they need more of that.

    A good PT, chiro, osteopath, whatever, can work wonders. A bad one can make your life worse. Don't be afraid to keep searching for the right one(s). Good luck, mang.

    Said screw it and ponied up for a 90 minute massage today. Holy fuck. She couldn't believe I was even able to walk with how tight and unbalanced my back/neck was. My whole right side was locked up. I am at like 75-80% now. Incredible. It's like my neck was so pinched/tight that it was making my nerves in my head messed up or something and causing my right side of my forehead to spasm. That was pulling on my eye or something and thats why having my eyes open made me nauseas. At least that's my theory for now.
