I was in a car accident in Feb. I was told I had whiplash. Last Aug I had c5-c6 afdc done for shoulder pain. I felt great until the accident. Now I have herniation c4-c5 and c6-c7. Also my neck is shifted wierd, that has showed up on all xrays and mri. the doctor says he doesn't now why. My doctor wont say it because of the accident. Had EMG no permanet damamge which is good. Feel like crap. The doctor wants me to have the shots again or phycial theraphy to see if it helps. It is like reliving a bad dream again.


  • I had the EXACT thing happen. Well, except for the ACDF surgery and all that, but other than that...

    I had been receiving treatment for 'sciatica' - had the ESIs without good relief. Then the RF. Now, the RF did actually aleve a good bit of my pain.

    THEN, I was rear-ended. Like you, my PM doc did not want to attribute my continued (and increasing) pain on the MVA. So, I settled for the policy limits.

    THEN, roughly 5 months later, I had the hemilami done at the L5/S1 level. And boy, did I feel GREAT after that simple procedure. Too bad I waited so long. Unlike you, I DO have permanent nerve damage to my right leg. bummer! I am glad you have been more fortunate than I in that regard.

    I'm so sorry you have to go through this all over again. Wishing you much success in that regard....
