  1. It doesn't sound "out there" at all. Those are actually the two areas that the chiropractors kept treating, but they couldn't get their adjustments to "stick". I will certainly look into doing an EMG, although I'm not quite sure how the results would help as far as coming up with some sort of effective treatment. And no, I'm not diabetic. Actually, one of the most frustrating things about this is that I'm relatively young (27) and take really good care of myself. I have a very clean diet, I exercise and/or do yoga six days a week, etc., yet I wake up feeling like an old man every day and don't have nearly the amount of energy that I should.
  2. Nope. I have considered Lyme disease as a possibility, but the symptoms aren't quite the same, and I don't recall ever having been bitten by a tick or having any sort of rash. Also, the headache started immediately after my jump which seems to be a pretty good indication that that is where this whole thing started.
  3. I'm assuming this is futile, but I'm hoping that someone might have some information regarding my situation. I went skydiving for the first time almost three years ago. Everything went smoothly; there were no issues at all. As best as I can remember, I had a headache immediately after the jump. I assumed that this was normal and maybe just had to do with the quick altitude change, air pressure, etc. Three years later, I still have a persistent daily headache along with a stiff/sore neck and mild fatigue. It's a constant, dull, warm pain that starts in the neck and goes up the back of my head. It's essentially a classic tension headache only it is highly unusual for this type of headache to have a sudden onset and become so persistent. I've been to several doctors, a neurologist (MRI normal), three chiropractors, two massage therapists, and an acupuncturist, and nobody has been able to put their finger on the source of the issue. The headache has gone away completely on two occasions, each time for several weeks, before returning. The first time it went away was after about six months of working with a chiropractor and massage therapist. The second time was after I decided to start doing yoga five times a week. However, like I said, the headache came back after a few weeks. Massage therapy and acupuncture both were able to put a dent in the headache and stiff neck, but things are always back to "normal" within a couple days. At this point, I've pretty much given up on doctors. I'm assuming that this is something with which I'm just going to have to live. Anyway, the point of this post is to see if anyone has dealt with anything similar, might have some idea as to what happened, or might have some sort of insight into this whole thing. Thanks.
  4. Quick update. It's been a week now and my headache is no better (or worse). My chiropractor adjusted my neck and back a couple days ago, but it made no difference. I'm hoping that catching up on some sleep over the long weekend will help. If it's no better by next week, I guess I'll have to begrudgingly go see another doctor.
  5. It's been four days and I still have a little bit of a headache. Fortunately, I already have an appointment scheduled for tomorrow to see my naturopath, who also happens to be a chiropractor. I'm hoping he'll be able to tell me what's going on.
  6. Just an update. I still have a headache although it's not quite as bad as yesterday. I've been searching the internet and have found at least a few accounts of other people who have experienced the same thing, sometimes lasting for 3-4 days. So, I'll give it another day or so and see what happens.
  7. It certainly could have been the sudden jolt although I was ready for it. Anyway, I'm hoping that it'll be gone by the morning. I'll check in tomorrow.
  8. I had my first tandem jump this afternoon (not nearly as terrifying as I thought it would be). Anyway, I noticed that I had a dull headache after landing. Now, eight hours later, it's not any better. I'm wondering if this is normal and whether or not it'll go away within another day or so. Thanks.
