Tightness in neck, head shakes, difficulty in focusing,

i have tightness in my neck and when I hold my head back i go black for a several seconds then my head shakes like i m having a ceaser (minus the foming at the mouth ) but then it goes away and i m left with a feeling as if my head is hanging upside down; sort of like how it feels when your blood rushes to your head when hanging upside down. this has happened a few times in the last 4 years. I experience my eyes moving with alot of pressure , and it s difficult to have mental pictures when reading, or thinking and staying focus is difficult. and i m tired alot... what could all of this be related to?

Dear Keifmusic, Thanks for the question. From your symptoms, you seem to be sufferring a blackout at a particular orientation of your head, which might point towards a deficient blood supply to your brain. This could be due to some anomaly in your vertebro-basilar artery or pinching of your carotid artery at some point in your neck while it is extended. This condition needs to be investigated thoroughly by angiography and/or C.T./M.R.I. Scans. You may need to consult a neurologist for treatment.

Welcome to HCM.
Your history suggests that there might be a nerve related problem which has to be examined and evaluated. I would suggest you to go to a neurologist as early as possible.
Hope this has answered your query.
