Over 2 months ago, I had a cervical whiplash due to an incorrect position. After few days , i woke up with stiff neck and ringing in the ears. Few doctors diagnosed me with discopathy and panic attacks, I took medication but there was no change.
I didnt feel satisfied, because i felt there was nothing wrong with my midstate and felt everything was physiologic. One doctor diagnosed me with Arnold neuralgia. I made kinetotherapy and relieved 90% of my head pain and tinnitus ( i guess i had a nerve pinched ). After few days, I started to do exercices for neck muscles. My tinnitus came back and my upper neck became very tense.
I went again to neurologist and told me that I have an incorrect position and i hear the tinnitus due to anxiety.
Now I am about to finish my medication and feeling almost no change. If I lay on my back and do slight moves with the neck. My upper neck loses his tension and my tinnitus reduces. If i sit up, they get worse. If i go for a walk, becomes awful. I feel my c1 vertebra very tense.
