Something doesn't add up.
This was all spelled out in interviews. The Rangers had his neck imaged and the doctors thought they saw something that might be contributing (pressing on the nerve, blah blah) so they gave him a cortison shot to see if it'd help

To me it sounds like they're doing everything they can to treat the symptoms just in case it's something else and not PCS. If it's PCS, you can't really treat it, if it's a neck issue or something, you can treat it. So, try things that might be the issue and see if it helps.

There's not a lot of "adding up" to do. He has headaches after working out hard, they think (or thought) it was a concussion but are trying to look at all solutions just in case it isn't (kinda hard to diagnose for sure as a concussion at this stage othe than just looking at symptoms)
