Welcome to healthcare magic!
Your problem has persisted quite long, I think you should get to it's roots. You might be having XXXXXXX damage secondary to the impact.
Please get the CT Scan of brain and cervical spine to make the things clear.
Because just taking blind treatments for a problem whose extent is unknown may be XXXXXXX
Problem may be musculo-skeletal or neurological.
You need a physical examination by your physician.
This work up is expected to detect the underlying problem so a definite treatment could be started.

I hope this advise would be helpful for you.

Still if you have any queries or doubts, please write me back,
I would be happy to solve them.

Wish you a great health!
