You're not alone in being confused. Sometimes I want to pull out my hair!
Perhaps part of the answer lies in the quality of care received after
the trauma. I broke my neck in two places in a skiing accident, but I received no care at all afterward -- when my siblings and I were children, we didn't speak up unless blood was gushing out of an artery, an eyeball had popped out, or a limb had been torn off, major trauma of that sort.
So, my body found a (pathological) way to support my neck, but it was not as good of a way as proper medical treatment would have been--the way I supported my neck caused many structural problems lower in my spine. The two broken bones in my neck were only discovered because I had X-rays taken by my AO doctor last year. Also discovered: misaligned Atlas (head tilt), scoliosis, spondylosis, stenosis, and more.
Maybe you'll want to ask an AO doctor for proper X-rays so you'll know whether or not your vertebra healed properly. If your Atlas is misaligned, you could have problems with veins, arteries, and nerves as they leave the skull. A misaligned Atlas is easy and painless to correct; I started noticing benefits within a few days of having my head on straight for the first time in decades.
I believe our neurological symptoms are due to myriad reasons, and it's up to each patient to investigate as many of the possibilities as possible until all neuro symptoms are relieved. I've done the DMDs, chemo, UCC, CCSVI, and now I'm starting to investigate antibiotics for Lyme Disease and the supplements, Daflon and NAG. Here's a post I made a couple days ago: Daflon 500 Tracking Thread

"MS" has so many hypotheses that it's almost crazy: infectious agents, congenital problems, environmental toxins, genetics, vertebral misalignment (CCVBP), nutritional deficiencies, autoimmune components, and venous obstruction, congestion, inflammation, remodeling, and hypertension (CCSVI and CVI).
