Customer Question
I was diagnosed with...

I was diagnosed with torticolis several years ago. I went thr

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

I went through rounds of Botox that severely weakened my neck so I do not consider this an option.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

My defining factor seems to be a nerve or something that is constantly pulsing and irritating to the right side beneath the skull irritating it and it usuing the head to the left. I feel as through if that 'pulsing' stops, problem solved but this symptom seems to be too much for any physician to figure out. Any thoughts?

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

5 years. No numbness, tingling. No falls. No drug use. Clean diet. Excellent vitals otherwise. Just had bone spurs removed from the right cervical spine, still having symptoms.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
