  Cristal...go to ur Dr and have a cervical spine and brain MRI...u could have some trauma induced issues that were not addressed with the injuries since u did not have MRI's...which may I ask y not? especially if 2 were major injuries?

  Please post an update after u find out what is going on

      Good luck

Hi Cristal,
How are you? With your history of head injuries, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor or be referred to a neurologist for proper evaluation. Stronger prescription medications may help provide relief. Imaging studies are also important to rule out any organic issues. Take care and do keep us posted.
