2016...aug 15th. Sneezed..intense pain that started mid back around ribs to neck and in between shoulders. Cervical radio right arm and loss sensation some arwas left arm. Shocks through base skull and massive headaches. 
Acute weakness and extreme heaviness after activity or eating. Episodes lasting upwards of 1 hour. Odd deep sensation of warmth and heat across whole back then resulting in extreme weakness, heaviness, and extreme fatigue. After 1 hour...better. 
Fast foward to now. Episodes are less but still occur with activity, i.e. running small errand. 
Right arm and left arm weaker and ache with numbness. Headaches still present daily with base skull feeling cold.
Brain fog is severe and clumsiness; dropping thungs or tripping. Lips are nearly 50% numb.right ear pops like im on airplane
Neurologist tested me for ANA, brain mri for stroke. CSF had low albumin but no pressure test done.
Cervical mri showed severe foraminal stenosis, cord flattening, disc herniations and bone spurs.
