C3,4,5, and 6 Bulging Discs/Whiplash
I'm at a loss for explanation of what is happening with my neck. I've read a lot of posts of people with similar problems and I'm trying to determine the best method to fix my current pain issues.
I'm a healthy 30 year old former triple sport athlete with no history of neck pain. I was in a minor rear end car accident 8 months ago and suffered a concussion and whiplash. I still suffer from daily pain in my neck- it's even painful to the touch. From my neck, there is radiating pain in my head- causing medium to severe headaches almost daily. I have random stabbing pain throughout my back as well. I've seen a chiropractor (4 months), a PT (3 months) and nothing seems to be working. I had an MRI of my neck and found that I have bulging discs at C3 - C6, as well as one in my lumber region (forgot which one). I've been told by the neurologist that this is nomal and that it probably isn't causing my pain.
Does anyone have any ideas or simiar experiences they would share with me? I'm at a loss and am starting to wonder if this will ever go away!
