I have daily headaches and horrible neck pain, pain has gotten substantially worse

I am a 16 year old female. When I was 9 years old I had a spontaneous allergic reaction and passed out into a wall resulting in a concussion. Ever since that moment I have had daily headaches and horrible neck pain. In the past 8-9 months the pain has gotten substantially worse and has know migrated to all points of my back especially the dimples of my back and tail bone. I’ve been getting dizzy a lot easier than usual in these times. Also, it is not a surprise for my limbs and lower back to go numb multiple times a day. I play varsity softball and am quite nervous to get back on the field not knowing if this is something I should be concerned about considering I have not a clue of whats going on.

hi dear
its definitely an issue worth concern if you have such unbearable neck pain at the age of just 16.

during the concussion,you may have injured some of your cervical discs . this may lead to nerve compression and radiating pain to back and other parts of the body.you should not neglect it though. get an mri of neck and whole spine done to see whats wrong. you can post the mri reports on this platform once its done.
till then take anti inflammatory tablets and use cervical soft collar.thanks

Hi…. passing through your history i think this neck pain would be a direct result of the concussion happend earlier which may have affected your neck in a way that you might need to do an initially Xray over the neck to check for any bony abnormality or else… the dizziness is usually due to vertebro basilar insufficiency in which your neck arteries are not delivering enough blood to brain… I guess your neck and back muscles are back enough to get those pain in the whole back.. if you developed numbness ? did you initially had a brain MRI… Read more »

HI
HAVING SUCH HEADACHES AFTER SO MANY YEARS AFTER YEARS IS RATHER UNUSUAL. THERE MAY BE OTHER ASSOCIATED PATHOLGY THAT NEEDS TO BE RULED OUT. GET A CT SCAN OF BRAIN DONE
YOU CAN SURELY GET BACK TO FIELD SOON. TAKE VITAMIN RICH FOODS
