Hello. Did you have an MRI of your cervical spine and/or just the brain? What you describe could be explained by cervicogenic headache with radiation behind the right eye. When it typically explodes it is termed hemicrania continua. All can be from clerical disc degenerative disease resultant to a slip and fall causing compression of C5/6 cervical disk and the right arm symptoms. If you have MRI imaging and have questions please upload the report and I will reply. Dr Frank

Yer they did one on spine and one on brain but said no nerve damage
I don't know how to up load results and send by phone
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I was only referred to a spine specialist after chiropractor said it is only soft tissue damage and will settle down in a few wks but it only got worse

I see. Did you get an EMG of your cervical spine and arm? You can email customer service and they will send me the reports. Dr Frank
