For the last nine years, I have suffered from neurological symptoms following an automobile accident. The primary issues I have are with migraine headaches and a constant sense of dizziness. I’ve seen many doctors and have had every relevant scan performed, but nothing shows any significant damage to my bone structure or nervous system that would cause these symptoms. My migraines are now under much better control through medication, but the dizziness remains. I did not suffer a concussion during the accident, and my symptoms did not occur until around 4 months afterward.
At this point, I’m considering whether the muscles and joints in my neck were injured in the accident, causing trigger points to form which have simply not be dealt with properly since that time. From what I’ve read, trigger points can certainly refer headache pain to the areas where I usually experience headaches. However, I am uncertain about the dizziness involved. My question is: Does anybody with trigger points in the neck also suffer with symptoms of dizziness or vertigo? If so, how would you describe the dizziness? Does it ever go away, or is it always present when turning your head independently of the body?
Thank you to anyone who is able to respond.
