ok, in june 2012 i got in a car accident it wasnt too bad. A few days later i went to the doctor just to see if anything was wrong because my back was sore, i got x-rays and they came back normal, my doctor put me in physical therapy and gave me muscle relaxers because she said i had a thoracic sprain. i began having this burning feeling/pain around c6 and c7 vertebrae. the muscle relaxers never did anything for the pain really. During physical therapy he did treatments such as electrode therapy about 3 times and dry needling (kind of like acupuncture) once. He never really said that anything was wrong with my neck and back, i dont think he really believed that i was in as much pain as i said i was. after the dry needling he said it didnt really help so he sent me to massage therapy, and that was the end of my 3 month PT. I went back to my doctor telling her that the feeling/pain was still bothering me so she had me get a CT scan and that came back normal too. so i got my first massage and she said that i have hypertensive muscles, that are just really realllly tight and the massages will help, she also said that its really inflamed by those areas in my spine and in my neck and in my neck kind of by the base of my skull. after two massages the pain still hasnt gone away. its like every time i sit down and do a project or on the computer or even at work standing up for a while, there is a tingling feeling, followed by this burning pain that doesnt seem to be relieved until i lay down. Whenever i workout now i notice that when i put pressure on my arms there is a pain in my bicep, that feels like a needle is going into it. My massage therapist said that could be from the pain and hypertension in my neck/back. Its been almost 6 months since this pain started and i haven't really been told what could be wrong, im wondering if its a pinched nerve/nerve damage or just what my massage therapist believes it is?
