BAKERSFIELD, Calif.(KBAK/KBFX) — Jamie Tudor doesn’t get out of the house very often. In fact, the 13-year-old girl tries not to move around much.

“I read and do my homework, watch movies – not very many things,” she said. “I have less friends, because I don’t get out a lot.”

Any movement for Jamie can mean nausea, back pain, headaches or neck pain.

“My back pain is in the middle. It feels like I’m being stabbed,” she said.

Common symptoms include headaches, balance problems, neck pain, trouble swallowing, vision problems, slurred speech and dizziness.

Sounds familiar……resounding theme: early MRI diagnosis makes treatment more successful.
