Time to see an NM osteopathic doctor (DO) who can help evaluate and treat it successfully, and order imaging. Skull base nerve issues can impact your balance, neck or head pain, swallowing, heart rate, feeling faint, chewing, dental. TMJ or shoulder issues due to muscles and nerves coming out the base of the skull.
