Maybe some nerves in your neck got pulled during PT, and it is just taking a while to resolve. But, seeing a neuro is your best bet, but know that many neuro's will disregard mild symptoms. Mine did, and he was a social friend. Even after reading an MRI report, since my physical exam was pretty much normal, he felt I had nothing really wrong -- then he saw my scans. So, if he is dismissive, try to push for an MRI. Tell him Florida Jayhawk presented with very mild symptoms and turns out he had a big fuzzy patch of demylanization in his brain!
I had a cervial MRI last night. I am under the care of a physiatrist right now, but I got a referral for a neurologist from my oncologist (10 year breast cancer victim). I will go see her regardless of the outcome of this (and other) tests. I suspected something that happened during PT, too, but no doctor will make that cause and effect connection. It is easier for them to say it was a coincidence that to try to explain that it wasn't.
Thank you for your information and reply.
