Pain and hearing loss in right ear, dizziness, blurred vision, insomnia, headaches, stuck in throat after accident. What's wrong ?

I was in a serious car accident on 1.20.13 the air bag emploded and I was unconcious, the car was on fire and a gentlemen pulled me from the wreakage, I was transported to the ER where they performed a Cat Scan on my neck and x-rays on both wrists and gave me a tetnus shot because I was bleeding from different areas. I have ringing, pain and hearing loss in my right ear, dizziness , blurred vision , insomnia , massive headaches that start from the back of my neck and radiate up mainly to the right side of my head, in addition I have a lump in my throat (just below the adams apple). My question is could there be veins that are pressing against the back of my throat making it feel like something is stuck in my throat?

hello and welcome to HCM,
These are some points to ponder:
1. Whenever you are involved in any injury, some amount of soft tissue swelling which manifests as lump while swallowing may be present which may not be seen in any CT or x ray. This however will gradually subside.
2. If you were unconscious for a long time, find out if any intubation or resuscitation was attempted on you. Any of these can cause a feeling of lump which again will subside in due course.
3. There are no veins which press on the back of your throat so rest assured
4. Since you have multitude of other symptoms such as ringing, pain and headache, you may be having a situation called diffuse axonal injury which can cause even the feeling of lump. This requires further investigation and treatment with your consultant.
hope these help
