Suggest Treatment For Severe Pain In The Neck
Hello. I'm more concerned with your cervical spine
Hello, Welcome to HCM.
While I have seen damage to the carotid arteries from something like this, I'd be more concerned that you might have a neck fracture and/or a ruptured disk. You need to be examined right away and get X-rays and an MRI of your neck to check for fractures and disk problems. If, by chance, the doctor was worried about carotid artery damage, a carotid angiogram can check for that.
Please let me know if you need more information.
Hello again. Usually there are no symptoms at first
Hello. The injury is called carotid dissection--a part of the inside wall of the artery is torn. Usually there are no symptoms at first--pain would be rare. If there were to be symptoms they would be of a stroke--loss of vision on one side, or loss of function or sensation on one half of the body--the arm, leg, or both.
