i am 18 years old anda second year medicine student.
I suffered a whiplash injury (cervical spine) 3-4 weeks ago because of a car accident.....my orthopedic doctor have seen my X-ray on cervical and thoracic vertebrae and told me nothing is so serious to consult a neurologist because it is just whiplash injury....but nowadays i feel sided headache,rare dizziness,numbness in my left little finger and a little bit not focused(not 100% concentration)
i suffer also flashing lights on my left eye...so i consulted an opthalmologist who stated the fllowing in his report:-
"fundus normal-left old operated retinal detachment and retina in place-glasses no need to be changed"
Should i be worried of brain tumor?
should i visit a neurologist?
thnx for your patience and sorry for inconvenience
