One more question:

Assuming that you could touch your chin to your chest last week, now that you have the headache etc, can you touch your chin to your chest now?

Any new headache needs evaluation by hands on physical exam.

This can still be, rarely, brain bleed, aneurysm, viral meningitis or other problem such as cervical spine disease.

Go get an exam now.

This is a different expert. I just saw your questions.

Sorry for the delays.
