I had a rear end collision at 80Km per hour in 1996 which at the time was told by a GP that it is whiplash and will take a couple of years to correct itself. After two years the pain had got worse.
I went to see a chiropractor after getting no help or tests done through a GP. The Chiroprator did a exray and found that my neck was now curved the opposite way to which it should be and I had lost the natural curve in my back (almost straight) and slight scoliosis.
I have since been to see several neurologists and pain specialists. I have had CT and MRI scans. The MRI found a dumbell lesion on C6/C7 (Left Side) which they said could be a neurofribroma. I have also had nerve tests which have all been normal.
The pain specialist then acrried out Facet joint injections and two rhizotomy's on C5/C6 and C6/7. Which lessened the pain for a short time.
I have constant aching pain in my lower neck and numbness and tingling down my right arm which was just through to the little and ring fingers and now is also through the thumb, index and middle fingers.
I have also been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia as well. Currently I am on strong pain killers.
I have now been referred to another neurologist to repat all of the scans again. I have been told to make sure I ask to have the dye used this time.
Does anyone have a similar story that would be able to offer me some advise on treatment they have had or any advise in general.
