I was recently in a car accident, rear-ended and they hit pretty hard. I began to have a head ache and neck pain that same day. I went to a doctor and for immediate assistance (did x-rays but swelling hadn’t went down, they thought it was whiplash) and I eventually went to a Chiro’s office, where they did numerous x-rays and evaluated my condition. Of course I had Whiplash but that was the least of my worries. My neck has no curve (AKA Cervical Kyphosis or military neck) Along with that, my neck is slightly twisted vertically and it is tilted so my head is not sitting on my spine properly. This Chiro says it should take a few “months” to fix it, but I do not believe that. I still have a spinal head ache (light headed, pain, dizziness), although after my first adjustment, it dramatically reduced in pain. I’m concerned about the stuff I’ve read online about my neck condition, plus it’s popping and cracking on it’s own. I know this sounds weird, but I think something else is wrong. I have some memory loss, brain fog and I don’t see things or notice things as much as I did before. I have almost hit a few parked cars, tripped and almost busted my face on a step at the chiro’s and my head feels “warm”.
I’m pretty sure I’ll need more than adjustments and ultrasound therapy as treatment, I’m afraid of the word *surgery*. I’m considering going to a neurologist, but since most people are better advocates for their selves and others of similar illnesses, I figured I would get opinions of those on this board first before making a decision. If I don’t come to a conclusion by Saturday, I’ll see a doctor to run more tests (MRI, CT ect).
I just want the TRUTH, not some quack lying to me so they can get some $$$.
So, any stories or similar situations you’d like to share? Any help is greatly appreciated.
