Headaches due to injury to the cerebellum. Neck pain, black and white lines in vision. Any advice?

I have been having a headache everyday since feb I went to my dr and he referred me to a neurologist. MRI of my brain showed fine except my cerebellum poked down but the dr said it was an accidental finding and doesn't think it's poked down enough to cause the headaches. I'm now having neck pain. Also seein black and white lines in my vision and bright lights have a big flow around. I wear contacts

Thank you for posting your query.

Your MRI findings could mean a herniation of cerebellar tonsils. If you can upload your report, it would be helpful in confirming that.

If it is mild, then there is no need to worry. However, if it is significant, then it may press on the lower part of brain (medulla) and upper spinal cord, leading to headache and neck pain.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
