When I was 17 I was in a car accident. I was hit from behind really hard and suffered trauma to my back and neck. Two years of therapy and chiropractic work seemed to fix the problem. Then when I was about 25 the pain in my neck returned. I saw a chiropractor again and he did x-rays showing that I have a severe reverse curve in my upper neck. This creating tension on my brain stem and giving me severe headaches. Now I have been through two years of Chiropractic care and I get these headaches daily instead of just occasionally. It is affecting me in ways of depression now because I can't control them any more.

You really need to see a specialist. I would make an appointment to see a good Neurologist in your area.

Default your neck pain and headache problem

What you have are cervicogenic headaches. My wife had exactly that problem. She had surgery for that and it did not work. There is a guy in Houston or Pasadena Texas Dr. Pappolla. he is board certified in neurology. He treated my wife with outpatients procedures (no surgery) and she is pain free now. I don't have his number here but I'm sure he may be listed in the phone directory or google. Hope this help you. Ed

Thumbs up your back and neck problem

Agree, I was seen by Dr. Pappolla. He was superb for my back pain. I found him through a friend who had a similar experience with neck pain and headaches like Ed. I suffered myself from back pain for about 3 years. My pain was located over the low back and right buttock and shot down the back of my leg. I was told first that I had a slipped disc causing radiculis problems, that is like a pinched nerve in the back. The MRI showed that too so I had surgery but continued with the pain. This doctor saw me and diagnosed a sacroliac joint (not sure about spelling) and put medicine in the area with an xray machine. My pain almost disappeared after that shot. Wished I saw him before my surgery!
