Pain

Whilst out running I fell down a steep slope tumbling head over heels and hitting my neck & lower back on rocks and knocking myself out for approximately 30 seconds, I went to doctors who told me its just bruised and there's nothing wrong. they did not look at my back or neck. I have shooting pains and feelings of water being poured down my legs,  any pressure on the back of my neck gives me horrendous headache and my vision goes blurry. I am worried as this has been a week and half now. I'm relying on painkillers and sleeping tablets as I can't sleep properly. did not sleep at all for 4 days due to severe pain in neck and can genuinely not function like this for much longer.

I would suggest getting a second opinion just to be sure. It's definitely not just a bruised muscle. Try applying warm compress for 20 minutes to the affected parts to helps minimize the pains.

Take care!

Please go to the ER right away for immediate treatment and to rule out any serious underlying conditions.

Take care!

That's good! Did you asked what's causing the symptoms of shooting pains, headache, and blurry visions? I hope you see improvement soon. Take care!
