i was involved in a car accident two years ago. I was rear ended by a car going 40 miles. I was stoped at red light. I have very bad lumbar pain, I have bulged disc and herniated disc. I have had 6 injections once and then 3 more. Nothing is working. There are days that I can not walk at all.

I also have nech pain where I can not move it side to side and it is worse when I stand up. I also get pinching and burning in the shoulders and very bad headackes.

My pain managment doctor is fixing nothing

Where should I go from here.


  • Hi, and welcome! Sorry you are having so much pain. Unfortunately, PM's can't fix you, but some questions to ask yourself: has yours sent you for any tests or tried injections/pt/meds or anything else? Are you being completely honest with him/her about your pain and how it is affecting you and your life?

    Any additional information will help others in similar situations better understand yours, and can provide the support you need.

    Take care!
  • yes i have had a total of none injections in my lower back. I ahve told my pm the truth about everything.

    is surgery the next thing to do
  • I had to get a 2nd Pain Management Dr's opinion just to be sure. Also ask your Primary Dr. for a NeuroSurgeon or OrthoSurgeon consult again. Try to get a few opinions about treatment and surgery. I hope you let them know how much pain your having to not be able to walk or stand and get a cane to help too. Best wishes and hope you find some relief. Charry
