In tears, severe pain months after car accident
I am tears right now, searching the internet for answers. I'm in so much pain it's terrible. I was rear ended by 2 vehicles 10 months ago, the 2nd hit right after the first and both times my head flung forward, the 2nd hit was massive, lost a few secs when my head hit the steering wheel.
Suffered a rotator cuff injury, severe concussion, head pressure and neck pain - whiplash. I was in PT for 3 months which helped with range of motion in my shoulder and neck but the pain has always been there to some degree.
Every time after PT I was in agony for a few days but the PT said that was normal. An MRI of my shoulder showed fluid and bursitis.
Some days they flare up so badly I cannot stand it, I'm not doing anything differently, the pain just gets worse.I also have tingling/numbness in my left forearm and fingers today.
All today the pain has been terrible, kills me to turn my neck in any direction, pain in my middle back and upwards and tops of my shoulders, I was on Vicodin but that barely helped.
When I go for my daily walk, my back always starts to hurt, don't know why. I'm walking for about 10 mins then here comes the pain, it doesn't always hurt but when I walk it does.
My neck and back feel like they are on fire right now, throbbing, I can hardly move.
My Dr. is sending me for Ten's machine treatments, wants to try that before an MRI.
Had neurological problems, some still lingering and also had vestibular therapy as I was dizzy and was 1/2 falling over when I walked. Sometimes I get dizzy and as strange as this sounds cannot think properly, have head pressure and get very confused then it passes after about a day.
I feel as though there is something wrong with my neck/back, has anyone any advice please??
It is after 2 a.m. and I can't stand this.
Thank you for any help.
