Numbness: I'm sorry that you are having all of these symptoms. You obviously have been to see someone in order to get a CT scan. Do you have a headache as well. You have some sensitivity to sound, we can't see the rest of your symptoms. If you haven't yet you need to see a neurologist, you probably need an MRI and an MRA or angiogram. You need someone to guide the ship of diagnosis to find out! ...Read more

If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain. ...Read more

If you have a history of neck problems, occipital neuralgia is frequently associated. If you are having headache, this may still be true but other things would need to be considered also. ...Read more
