I am so glad I found a site that could help me. I am 23 years old and was rear-ended almost a year ago. I have 4 bulging disc in my neck and 2 pinched nerves as a result from that, which still cause me daily pain. I have been told by my lawyer that having 4 bulging disc from a car accident is very rare and because of that the insurance company says I have a pre-exsisting condition and will not give me anything past $5k, I went three times a week to pyshical therapy for 9 MONTHS and had cordozone injections in my back. I did have a nerve test done and they did find that it was due to the accident.
I have never had neck pain in my life prior to this accident. I also do not smoke or drink.
Could this have been pre-existing? I can't imagine that it is and I am just unlucky.
The pain that radiates down my arm comes and goes but does not let me lift heavy things or hold things for too long. I don't know what to do. I went to a nero-surgeon and they said that surgery at the moment is not reccomended because I am to young but I will most likely need it when I am older.
What do I do? Is their any test I can take or exams to prove that my condition is not pre-exsiting and infact will worsen?
They told me I would be fine within 6 months, my neck and arm pain have not gotten any better.
