Had pain on neck and face after cesarean. Diagnosed with cervical spondylosis. Getting pain again. Reoccurring?

Hi there. I had a baby 3 years go. 2 weeks after ceasarian birth, I expereinced excruciating pain on the right side of face and to the back of my head and neck . I saw a chiro who said it may be related to posture as I was breast feeding at the time. The pain persisted and the right eye also hurt really bad, and both eyes became dry. I have shopped for someone to help with the pain . I have been to munerous opthalmic specialists, nerurologist, chiros , physio. I had 2 MRI and 1 CT scan . The only diagnsis was cervical spondylosis . But no amount of meds helped the facial pain. LEts not mention the anxiety as I felt I had somethign terminal that was being dianosed.. I am now seeing a chiro who has done dry needling for the pain on face. Initailly he said I had myofascial pain syndrome - after a few sessions, we have now come to the conclusion that I have TMD (as my jaws clicked really bad). My question is , is this really TMD?? and will all the symptoms subside if the TMD is fixed??? My syptoms are : slight dizzy feeling, permanent facial pain, Right eye slightly not focussed, dry eyes (both) neck and shoulder pain, jaw pain in fron of right ear ,ear ache, blurred vision , pain behind right eye. I was perfectly fine until the birth.. I am now 43)

as you have excruciating pain in neck and back of head, and you are diagnosed cervical spondylosis along with you are having facial neuritis most probably.Therefore I like to advice you to go for cervical spondylosis by having physiotherapy treatment ( Neck traction treatment ) regularly and neuritis treatment by consulting neuro physician for treatment of possibly facial nerve infection or involvement as you described your symptoms.Till you consult your neurologist you may take some nerve supplements such as vitamin B1 B6 B12 and analgesics to relieve your symptoms.
Hope you will be satisfied by my advice and will take necessary steps to get relive from your symptoms.take care, good luck.
